[PATCH 22/22] perf symbols: Do not open device files

From: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo
Date: Tue Sep 20 2016 - 16:04:44 EST

From: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@xxxxxxxxxx>

The dso__read_binary_type_filename gets the dso's file name to open. We
need to check it for regular file before trying to open it, otherwise we
might get stuck with device file.
