perf probe: Do not access kallsyms when analyzing user binaries

Do not access kallsyms to show available variables and show source lines
in user binaries.

This behavior always requires the root privilege when sysctl sets
kernel.kptr_restrict=1, but we don't need it just for analyzing user
binaries.

Without this patch (by normal user, kptr_restrict=1):
  ----
  $ perf probe -x ./perf -V add_cmdname
  Failed to init vmlinux path.
    Error: Failed to show vars.
  $ perf probe -x ./perf -L add_cmdname
  Failed to init vmlinux path.
    Error: Failed to show lines.
  ----

With this patch:
  ----
  $ perf probe -x ./perf -V add_cmdname
  Available variables at add_cmdname
          @<perf_unknown_cmd_config+144>
                  (No matched variables)
          @<list_commands_in_dir+160>
                  (No matched variables)
          @<add_cmdname+0>
                  char*   name
                  size_t  len
                  struct cmdnames*        cmds
  $ perf probe -x ./perf -L add_cmdname
  <add_cmdname@...me/fedora/ksrc/linux-3/tools/perf/util/help.c:0>
        0  void add_cmdname(struct cmdnames *cmds, const char *name, size_t len)
        1  {
        2         struct cmdname *ent = malloc(sizeof(*ent) + len + 1);

        4         ent->len = len;
        5         memcpy(ent->name, name, len);
        6         ent->name[len] = 0;
  ...
