Bug Description

Subtests in the powerpc directory were defined with:
    TARGETS = pmu tm

However, this TARGETS here will get overrided if we run those tests in ubuntu_kernel_selftests with (this is the recommended way):
   $ make -C tools/testing/selftests TARGETS=ptrace run_tests

So the test will failed with:
  make: Entering directory `/home/ubuntu/autotest/client/tmp/ubuntu_kernel_selftests/src/linux/tools/testing/selftests'
  for TARGET in powerpc; do \
    make -C $TARGET; \
  make[1]: Entering directory `/home/ubuntu/autotest/client/tmp/ubuntu_kernel_selftests/src/linux/tools/testing/selftests/powerpc'
  make: Entering an unknown directory
  make: Leaving an unknown directory
  make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/ubuntu/autotest/client/tmp/ubuntu_kernel_selftests/src/linux/tools/testing/selftests/powerpc'
  make: Leaving directory `/home/ubuntu/autotest/client/tmp/ubuntu_kernel_selftests/src/linux/tools/testing/selftests'
  make: *** powerpc: No such file or directory. Stop.

This issue had been addressed upstream, with commit a908f5de3b10d1a6
