perf buildid-cache: Add option to show build ids that are missing in the cache
This will allow to connect with services being put in place by distros such as Fedora, where one can retrieve DSOs by their build-id. Example usage: for buildid in $(perf buildid-cache --missing perf.data | cut -d' ' -f1) ; do echo "trying to get $buildid" wget -q https://darkserver.fedoraproject.org/buildids/$buildid cat $buildid ; echo rm -f $buildid done Now its just a matter of some porcelain to get the details provided by such a service, retrieve the file and use 'perf buildid-cache --add $FILE' to insert it in the cache, then use 'perf report' or 'annotate' that will find the required files in the cache.
