Normally I don't use this, as 'make install' will set it to a place that
the perf symbol code will look, check its build id, see that it matches
the what is running, i.e. this will hold true:

[root@ssdandy ~]# perf buildid-list --hell 2>&1 | grep -- --kernel
-k, --kernel Show current kernel build id
[root@ssdandy ~]# perf buildid-list --kernel
cd1d2cf9f473d0cac668e3afee32866da4540bd4
[root@ssdandy ~]#
[root@ssdandy ~]# perf buildid-list -i
/lib/modules/4.0.0-rc6+/build/vmlinux
cd1d2cf9f473d0cac668e3afee32866da4540bd4

I.e. no need to explicitely pass '-k vmlinux':

[root@ssdandy ~]# perf probe -v --add='sys_write%return'
probe-definition(0): sys_write%return
symbol:sys_write file:(null) line:0 offset:0 return:1 lazy:(null)
0 arguments
Looking at the vmlinux_path (7 entries long)
Using /lib/modules/4.0.0-rc6+/build/vmlinux for symbols
Open Debuginfo file: /lib/modules/4.0.0-rc6+/build/vmlinux
Try to find probe point from debuginfo.
Symbol sys_write address found : ffffffff811e5f10
Probe point found: SyS_write+0
Found 1 probe_trace_events.
Opening /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/kprobe_events write=1
Added new event:
Writing event: r:probe/sys_write SyS_write+0
probe:sys_write (on sys_write%return)

You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

perf record -e probe:sys_write -aR sleep 1

[root@ssdandy ~]#
