He Kuang reported a problem that perf fails to get correct symbol on
Android platform in [1]. The problem can be reproduced on normal x86_64
platform. I will describe the reproducing steps in detail at the end of
commit message.

The reason of this problem is the missing of symbol adjustment for normal
shared objects. In most of the cases skipping adjustment is okay. However,
when '.text' section have different 'address' and 'offset' the result is wrong.
I checked all shared objects in my working platform, only wine dll objects and
debug objects (in .debug) have this problem. However, it is common on Android.
For example:

 $ readelf -S ./libsurfaceflinger.so | grep \.text
   [10] .text             PROGBITS         0000000000029030  00012030

This patch enables symbol adjustment for dynamic objects so the symbol
address got from elfutils would be adjusted correctly.

Now nearly all types of ELF files should adjust symbols. Makes
ss->adjust_symbols default to true.

Steps to reproduce the problem:

  $ cat ./Makefile
  PWD := $(shell pwd)
  LDFLAGS += "-Wl,-rpath=$(PWD)"
  CFLAGS += -g
  main: main.c libbuggy.so
  libbuggy.so: buggy.c
	gcc -g -shared -fPIC -Wl,-Ttext-segment=0x200000 $< -o $@
  clean:
	rm -rf main libbuggy.so *.o

  $ cat ./buggy.c
  int fib(int x)
  {
      return (x == 0) ? 1 : (x == 1) ? 1 : fib(x - 1) + fib(x - 2);
  }

  $ cat ./main.c
  #include <stdio.h>

  extern int fib(int x);
  int main()
  {
     int i;

     for (i = 0; i < 40; i++)
         printf("%d\n", fib(i));
     return 0;
 }

 $ make
 $ perf record ./main
 ...
 $ perf report --stdio
 # Overhead  Command  Shared Object      Symbol
 # ........  .......  .................  ...............................
 #
     14.97%  main     libbuggy.so        [.] 0x000000000000066c
      8.68%  main     libbuggy.so        [.] 0x00000000000006aa
      8.52%  main     libbuggy.so        [.] fib@plt
      7.95%  main     libbuggy.so        [.] 0x0000000000000664
      5.94%  main     libbuggy.so        [.] 0x00000000000006a9
      5.35%  main     libbuggy.so        [.] 0x0000000000000678
 ...

The correct result should be (after this patch):

  # Overhead  Command  Shared Object      Symbol
  # ........  .......  .................  ...............................
  #
      91.47%  main     libbuggy.so        [.] fib
       8.52%  main     libbuggy.so        [.] fib@plt
       0.00%  main     [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] kmem_cache_free
