Instead of looking at the kptr_restrict file, please just look at the
addresses in the kallsyms file, and if they are all zero, you know
that it's not a usable kallsyms file (and you can pretty much assume
that it's due to kptr_restrict).

So I think the whole symbol__read_kptr_restrict() thing is just
pointless. Don't do it.
