We match maps to builds ids using the file name - consider
machine__findnew_[v]dso() called in map__new(). So in the context of a perf
data file, we consider the file name to be unique.

A vdso map does not have a file name - all we know is that it is vdso. We
look at the thread to tell if it is 32-bit, 64-bit or x32. Then we need to
get the build id which has been recorded using short name "[vdso]" or
"[vdso32]" or "[vdsox32]".

The problem is that on a 32-bit machine, we use the name "[vdso]". If you
take a 32-bit perf data file to a 64-bit machine, it gets hard to figure out
if "[vdso]" is 32-bit or 64-bit.

This patch solves that problem.

I acked it in another email.
