Hi Folks,

Here is second version of mini-series that addresses couple issues
in perf symbols handling.

Changes since V1:

o 'perf symbols: Ignore mapping symbols on aarch64': based on feedback
from Will Deacon and Russell King [1] added code that handles ARM/Aarch64
mapping symbols like "$d.<any>". Code uses similar snipet to handle
ARM mapping symbols as in another places in kernel, but it has its
own version of the code. Added proper Acked-by.

o 'perf symbols: debuglink should take symfs option into account':
based on feedback from David Ahern [2] picked more simple version that
does not make malloced copy of 'filename', that makes patch simpler.
Added proper 'Acked-and-tested-by'.
