[PATCH V3 2/2] perf symbols: debuglink should take symfs option into account

Currently code that tries to read corresponding debug symbol
file from .gnu_debuglink section (DSO_BINARY_TYPE__DEBUGLINK)
does not take in account symfs option, so filename__read_debuglink
function cannot open ELF file, if symfs option is used.

Fix is to add proper handling of symfs as it is done in other
places: use __symbol__join_symfs function to get real file name
of target ELF file.
