Subject[PATCH] scripts/kallsyms: filter symbols not in kernel address space
Date
This patch uses CONFIG_PAGE_OFFSET to filter symbols which
are not in kernel address space because these symbols are
generally for generating code purpose and can't be run at
kernel mode, so we needn't keep them in /proc/kallsyms.

For example, on ARM there are some symbols which are
linked in relocatable code section, then perf can't parse
symbols any more from /proc/kallsyms, and this patch fixes
the problem.
