That is a corner case. In most cases, the debuginfo file will not be
found and silently skipped. We warn only if the debuginfo file exist,
but the version is not matched.

This is shown not only for perf probe -l, but also other debuginfo
usecases. So, if you installed an old debuginfo but has same filename
with new one, this message will be shown if you try perf probe -a func:line etc.

I think both are good, because if you see this warning, you will
incorrectly install debuginfo files or perf's debuginfo detection
doesn't work correctly on that environment (e.g. new distro).

Thank you,
