[PATCH] perf symbols: Fix reading build id

From: Uwe Kleine-KÃnig
Date: Thu Jul 21 2016 - 03:09:32 EST

From: Uwe Kleine-KÃnig <u.kleine-koenig@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

When is_regular_file(name) is called name points to a freshly allocated
and uninitialized chunk of memory, so is_regular_file(name) is usually
false and reading build id is skipped which makes it impossible to
find debug infos when a build id based system is in use.

Fixes: 403567217d3f ("perf symbols: Do not read symbols/data from device files")
