Yup, brown baggie variety. Oh darn.

perf_counter tools: fix brown baggie module symbol loading bug.

If there are no modules currently loaded, or the last module scanned is not
loaded, dso__load_modules() steps on the value from dso__load_vmlinux(), so
we happily load the kallsyms symbols on top of what we've already loaded.

Fix that such that the total count of symbols loaded is returned. Should
module symbol load fail after parsing of vmlinux, is's a hard failure, so
do not silently fall-back to kallsyms.
