Subject[PATCH 09/17] perf tools: Don't search for active kernel start in __machine__create_kernel_maps
We should not search for kernel start address in
__machine__create_kernel_maps function, because it's being
used in 'report' code path, where we are interested in kernel
MMAP data address instead of in current kernel address

The __machine__create_kernel_maps serves purely for creating
the machines kernel maps and setting up the kmap group. The
report code path then sets the address based on the data from
kernel MMAP event in machine__set_kernel_mmap function.

The kallsyms search address logic is used for test code, that
calls machine__create_kernel_maps to get current maps and calls
machine__get_running_kernel_start to get kernel starting address.

Also making __machine__create_kernel_maps static, because there's
no external user.
