[PATCH 25/27] perf inject: Add --kallsyms parameter

From: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo
Date: Fri Jul 25 2014 - 11:39:52 EST

From: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@xxxxxxxxx>

Let perf inject take --kallsyms parameter the same as perf script and
perf report do.

That is needed for decoding Instruction Trace data using a copy of
/proc/kcore for the kernel object because the kallsyms path is used to
locate that copy.
