Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/2] perf tools: Ensure --symfs ends with '/'

I don't think this is the right way of doing this, users of
symbol_conf.symfs should instead make sure that they do what they expect
to, i.e. if they want it to be a base directory, make sure that a path
separator is added between it and the relative path following it, if
not, do as they please.
