perf annotate browser: Be more robust when drawing jump arrows
This first happened with a gcc function, _cpp_lex_token, that has the usual jumps: │1159e6c: ↓ jne 115aa32 <_cpp_lex_token@@Base+0xf92> I.e. jumps to a label inside that function (_cpp_lex_token), and those works, but also this kind: │1159e8b: ↓ jne c469be <cpp_named_operator2name@@Base+0xa72> I.e. jumps to another function, outside _cpp_lex_token, which are not being correctly handled generating as a side effect references to ab->offset[] entries that are set to NULL, so to make this code more robust, check that here. A proper fix for will be put in place, looking at the function name right after the '<' token and probably treating this like a 'call' instruction. For now just don't draw the arrow.
