`/usr/bin/perf` occures in both `community/hdf5-openmpi` and `community/perf`

Additional info:
* package version(s): hdf5-openmpi:1.12.2 perf:5.17


The `/usr/bin/perf` in `community/hdf5-openmpi` is just a small executable providing some performance numbers for the user, perhaps we could just ditch it or rename it in the `PKGBUILD/install()`
$LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/tmp/hdf5-openmpi/usr/lib/ ./tmp/hdf5-openmpi/usr/bin/perf -h
./perf: invalid option -- 'h'
# Using hdf5-io calls.
*** Hint ***
You can use environment variable HDF5_PARAPREFIX to run parallel test files in a
different directory or to add file type prefix. e.g.,
*** End of Hint ***
nr_procs = 1, nr_iter = 1, blk_sz = 16777216
# total_size = 16777216

Reason for closing:  Upstream
Additional comments about closing:  Upstream removed perf, so did we in 1.12.2-3.

I would have renamed to h5perf, but that already exists too. Any other name idea?

Ptobably raise it upstream to let them choose an official none conflicting name that will be uniform across different distros instead of choosing ourselves?

@anthraxx: Already did:
@archange:. Maybe h5perf_parallel in contrast with h5perf_serial

What shall be done until upstream solves the issue? This is blocking system upgrade for people.

@lahwaacz suggestions :
1. rename this sh!t and repackage.
2. sudo rm -rf /
