perf probe: Show better error message when failed to find variable

Indicate to check variable location range in error message when we got
failed to find the variable.

Before this patch:

$ perf probe --add 'generic_perform_write+118 bytes'
Failed to find the location of bytes at this address.
Perhaps, it has been optimized out.
Error: Failed to add events.

After this patch:

$ perf probe --add 'generic_perform_write+118 bytes'
Failed to find the location of the 'bytes' variable at this address.
Perhaps it has been optimized out.
Use -V with the --range option to show 'bytes' location range.
Error: Failed to add events.
