scripts/kallsyms: filter symbols not in kernel address space
This patch uses CONFIG_PAGE_OFFSET to filter symbols which are not in kernel address space because these symbols are generally for generating code purpose and can't be run at kernel mode, so we needn't keep them in /proc/kallsyms. For example, on ARM there are some symbols which may be linked in relocatable code section, then perf can't parse symbols any more from /proc/kallsyms, this patch fixes the problem (introduced b9b32bf70f2fb710b07c94e13afbc729afe221da) Cc: Russell King <linux@arm.linux.org.uk> Cc: linux-arm-kernel@lists.infradead.org Cc: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz> Signed-off-by: Ming Lei <tom.leiming@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au> Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org
