Subject[PATCH v7 17/18] perf tools: Ignore ABS symbols when loading data maps
Date
From: Namhyung Kim <namhyung.kim@lge.com>

When loading symbols in a data mapping, ABS symbols (which has a value
of SHN_ABS in its st_shndx) failed at elf_getscn(). And it marks the
loading as a failure so already loaded symbols cannot be fixed up.

I'm not sure what should be done. Just ignore them for now. :)
