Based on the above comments I have redone the patch:

If die entries corresponding to declarations appear before definition
entry, probe finder returns error instead of continuing to look further
for a definition entry.

This patch ensures we reach to the die entry corresponding to the
definition and get the function address.

V2: A simpler solution based on Masami's suggestion.
