Subject[PATCH 02/13] perf symbols: Add dso__insert_symbol function
Date
From: Chris Phlipot <cphlipot0@gmail.com>

The current method for inserting symbols is to use the symbols__insert()
function. However symbols__insert() does not update the dso symbol
cache. This causes problems in the following scenario:

1. symbol not found at addr using dso__find_symbol

2. symbol inserted at addr using the existing symbols__insert function

3. symbol still not found at addr using dso__find_symbol() because cache isn't
updated. This is undesired behavior.

The undesired behavior in (3) is addressed by creating a new function,
dso__insert_symbol() to both insert the symbol and update the symbol
cache if necessary.

If dso__insert_symbol() is used in (2) instead of symbols__insert(),
then the undesired behavior in (3) is avoided.
