Thanks for the fix!

It looks like it helps, at least with nf_conntrack in kernel 5.11:
---------------------
# ./perf probe -v -m nf_conntrack nf_ct_resolve_clash
probe-definition(0): nf_ct_resolve_clash
symbol:nf_ct_resolve_clash file:(null) line:0 offset:0 return:0 lazy:(null)
0 arguments
Failed to get build-id from nf_conntrack.
Cache open error: -1
Open Debuginfo file:
/lib/modules/5.11.0-test01/kernel/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack.ko
Try to find probe point from debuginfo.
Matched function: nf_ct_resolve_clash [33616]
Probe point found: nf_ct_resolve_clash+0
Found 1 probe_trace_events.
Opening /sys/kernel/tracing//kprobe_events write=1
Opening /sys/kernel/tracing//README write=0
Writing event: p:probe/nf_ct_resolve_clash
nf_conntrack:nf_ct_resolve_clash+0
Added new event:
probe:nf_ct_resolve_clash (on nf_ct_resolve_clash in nf_conntrack)

You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

perf record -e probe:nf_ct_resolve_clash -aR sleep 1
---------------------

I guess, the patch is suitable for stable kernel branches as well.

Without the patch, the workaround you suggested earlier (using the full
path to nf_conntrack.ko) works too.
