SubjectRe: [PATCH 06/12] perf tools: Do not erase uncovered maps by kcore

Memory for jited-bpf is allocated from the same area that is used for
modules. In the case of /proc/kcore, that entire area is mapped, so there
won't be any bpf-maps that are not covered. For copies of kcore made by
'perf buildid-cache' the same would be true for any bpf that got allocated
in between modules.

But shouldn't the bpf map supersede the kcore map for the address range that
it maps? I guess that would mean splitting the kcore map, truncating the
first piece and inserting the bpf map in between.
