Arm and arm64 architecture reserve some memory regions prior to the
symbol '_stext' and these memory regions later will be used by device
module and BPF jit.  The current code misses to consider these memory
regions thus any address in the regions will be taken as user space
mode, but perf cannot find the corresponding dso with the wrong CPU
mode so we misses to generate samples for device module and BPF
related trace data.

This patch parse the link scripts to get the memory size prior to start
address and reduce this size from 'machine>->kernel_start', then can
get a fixed up kernel start address which contain memory regions for
device module and BPF.  Finally, machine__get_kernel_start() can reflect
more complete kernel memory regions and perf can successfully generate
samples.

The reason for parsing the link scripts is Arm architecture changes text
offset dependent on different platforms, which define multiple text
offsets in $kernel/arch/arm/Makefile.  This offset is decided when build
kernel and the final value is extended in the link script, so we can
extract the used value from the link script.  We use the same way to
parse arm64 link script as well.  If fail to find the link script, the
pre start memory size is assumed as zero, in this case it has no any
change caused with this patch.

Below is detailed info for testing this patch:

- Install or build LLVM/Clang;

- Configure perf with ~/.perfconfig:

  root@debian:~# cat ~/.perfconfig
  # this file is auto-generated.
  [llvm]
          clang-path = /mnt/build/llvm-build/build/install/bin/clang
          kbuild-dir = /mnt/linux-kernel/linux-cs-dev/
          clang-opt = "-g"
          dump-obj = true

  [trace]
          show_zeros = yes
          show_duration = no
          no_inherit = yes
          show_timestamp = no
          show_arg_names = no
          args_alignment = 40
          show_prefix = yes

- Run 'perf trace' command with eBPF event:

  root@debian:~# perf trace -e string \
      -e $kernel/tools/perf/examples/bpf/augmented_raw_syscalls.c

- Read eBPF program memory mapping in kernel:

  root@debian:~# echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/core/bpf_jit_kallsyms
  root@debian:~# cat /proc/kallsyms | grep -E "bpf_prog_.+_sys_[enter|exit]"
  ffff00000008a0d0 t bpf_prog_e470211b846088d5_sys_enter  [bpf]
  ffff00000008c6a4 t bpf_prog_29c7ae234d79bd5c_sys_exit   [bpf]

- Launch any program which accesses file system frequently so can hit
  the system calls trace flow with eBPF event;

- Capture CoreSight trace data with filtering eBPF program:

  root@debian:~# perf record -e cs_etm/@tmc_etr0/ \
	--filter 'filter 0xffff00000008a0d0/0x800' -a sleep 5s

- Decode the eBPF program symbol 'bpf_prog_f173133dc38ccf87_sys_enter':

  root@debian:~# perf script -F,ip,sym
