Should be fixed by this patch:

Subject: [PATCH 1/1] perf symbols: Set the DSO long name when using symbol_conf.vmlinux_name
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

We need to set the long name to the name specified via, for instance,
'perf annotate --vmlinux /path/to/vmlinux', if not it will remain as
'[kernel.kallsyms]' and that will make annotate fail when passing this
as the vmlinux name in the call to objdump.

The way this is setup grew unwieldly and dso__load_vmlinux is the
function that should allocate space for the long name, with callers not
assuming that filenames should be allocated somehow by then (strdup,
dso__build_id_filename, etc).

For now this is the minimalistic patch, a proper fix for .36 will be
made.
