perf tools: Back [vdso] DSO with real data
Storing data for VDSO shared object, because we need it for the post unwind processing. The VDSO shared object is same for all process on a running system, so it makes no difference when we store it inside the tracer - perf. When [vdso] map memory is hit, we retrieve [vdso] DSO image and store it into temporary file. During the build-id processing phase, the [vdso] DSO image is stored in build-id db, and build-id reference is made inside perf.data. The build-id vdso file object is called '[vdso]'. We don't use temporary file name which gets removed when record is finished. During report phase the vdso build-id object is treated as any other build-id DSO object. Adding following API for vdso object: bool is_vdso_map(const char *filename) - returns true if the filename matches vdso map name struct dso *vdso__dso_findnew(struct list_head *head) - find/create proper vdso DSO object vdso__exit(void) - removes temporary VDSO image if there's any This change makes backtrace dwarf post unwind possible from [vdso] maps.
