perf annotate: Fix it for non-prelinked *.so
The problem was we were incorrectly calculating objdump addresses for sym->start and sym->end, look: For simple ET_DYN type DSO (*.so) with one function, objdump -dS output is something like this: 000004ac <my_strlen>: int my_strlen(const char *s) 4ac: 55 push %ebp 4ad: 89 e5 mov %esp,%ebp 4af: 83 ec 10 sub $0x10,%esp { i.e. we have relative-to-dso-mapping IPs (=RIP) there. For ET_EXEC type and probably for prelinked libs as well (sorry can't test - I don't use prelink) objdump outputs absolute IPs, e.g. 08048604 <zz_strlen>: extern "C" int zz_strlen(const char *s) 8048604: 55 push %ebp 8048605: 89 e5 mov %esp,%ebp 8048607: 83 ec 10 sub $0x10,%esp { So, if sym->start is always relative to dso mapping(*), we'll have to unmap it for ET_EXEC like cases, and leave as is for ET_DYN cases. (*) and it is - we've explicitely made it relative. Look for adjust_symbols handling in dso__load_sym() Previously we were always unmapping sym->start and for ET_DYN dsos resulting addresses were wrong, and so objdump output was empty. The end result was that perf annotate output for symbols from non-prelinked *.so had always 0.00% percents only, which is wrong. To fix it, let's introduce a helper for converting rip to objdump address, and also let's document what map_ip() and unmap_ip() do -- I had to study sources for several hours to understand it.
