build_id_cache__kallsyms_path() accepts a string buffer but also allocs
a buffer using asnprintf. Unfortunately, the its only user passes it a
stack-allocated buffer. Freeing it causes crashes like this:

  ======= Memory map: ========

This patch simplifies build_id_cache__kallsyms_path(), not even
considering allocating a string buffer, so never frees anything. Its
caller should manage memory allocation.
