Ok, we don't want to *just* have the "./" pattern ever be replaced,
because for all I know there could be a directory name ending with "."
in there somewhere.

But I guess we could do it this way instead:

--- a/scripts/faddr2line
+++ b/scripts/faddr2line
@@ -79,7 +79,7 @@ find_dir_prefix() {

- DIR_PREFIX=$prefix
+ DIR_PREFIX="$prefix\(\./\)*"
return 0

and thus just make it part of the auto-generated pattern string instead.
