perf record: Fix s390 missing module symbol and warning for non-root users

[ Upstream commit 6738028d ]

Command 'perf record' and 'perf report' on a system without kernel
debuginfo packages uses /proc/kallsyms and /proc/modules to find
addresses for kernel and module symbols. On x86 this works for root and
non-root users.

On s390, when invoked as non-root user, many of the following warnings
are shown and module symbols are missing:

    proc/{kallsyms,modules} inconsistency while looking for
        "[sha1_s390]" module!

Command 'perf record' creates a list of module start addresses by
parsing the output of /proc/modules and creates a PERF_RECORD_MMAP
record for the kernel and each module. The following function call
sequence is executed:

        machine__create_module --> for each line in /proc/modules

Function arch__fix_module_text_start() is s390 spec...
