Subject: [PATCH 1/3] perf tools: Allow vmlinux to fallback to kallsyms on NO_LIBELF=1

When libelf is not used, perf cannot not show symbol names since it
doesn't access the ELF symbol table.  But kernel is different as it
can fallback to kallsyms.

It worked w/o libelf, but recent change to use vmlinux for kernel
symbols break it.

With this change, it now can show kernel symbols again:

  # ........  .......  .................  ........................
