From: Victor Kamensky <victor.kamensky@linaro.org>

Aarch64 ELF files use mapping symbols with special names $x, $d
to identify regions of Aarch64 code (see Aarch64 ELF ABI - "ARM
IHI 0056B", section "4.5.4 Mapping symbols").

The patch filters out these symbols at load time, similar to
"696b97a perf symbols: Ignore mapping symbols on ARM" changes
done for ARM before V8.

Also added handling of mapping symbols that has format
"$d.<any>" and similar for both cases.

Note we are not making difference between EM_ARM and
EM_AARCH64 mapping symbols instead code handles superset
of both.
