From: Wang Nan <wangnan0@huawei.com>

There is a nasty confusion that, for kernel module, dso->kernel is not
necessary to be DSO_TYPE_KERNEL or DSO_TYPE_GUEST_KERNEL.  These two
enums are for vmlinux. See thread [1]. We tried to fix this part but it
is costy.

Code machine__write_buildid_table() is another unfortunate function fall
into this trap that, when issuing buildid event for a kernel module,
cpumode it gives to the event is PERF_RECORD_MISC_USER, not

However, even with this bug, most of the time it doesn't causes real
problem. I find this issue when trying to use a perf before commit
3d39ac538629 ("perf machine: No need to have two DSOs lists") to parse a
perf.data generated by newest perf.
