Well, this will have to wait for somebody to remove the need for
intercepting those events, reverting this patch fixes your tool while
breaking others that then won't catch all the events.

I'll get 'perf regtest' out with some initial tests then try to get some
proposal for injecting the buildid, if found in a DSO, via
PERF_RECORD_MMAP, lets see how this goes...
