    That was my thought -- to use the same for both dso and sym if it is
    unknown. And since DSO names are wrapped in () use "[unknown]" for both
    -- ie., right now the format is "symname (dsoname)" (though kernel syms
    from kallsyms come out as "symname ([kernel.kallsyms])"). With an
    unknown it will be "[unknown] (dsoname)" or "[unknown] ([unknown])"
    which retains the number of fields in a uniquely parse-able way.
