In previous patch, I use 'perf buildid-cache -a' to add vdso
binary into the HOST buildid dir.

Currently, $(BUILDID_ROOT)/.debug/.buildid has a directory
structure organized by the buildid value, like this:

  .build-id
  - 3a
  |    e5ba6d4e532ad529e43ccf1ce1ddf8a64a4fdd
  - 84
       dbd75729adba57cc42f5544b25de571c0c8731

perf searchs for buildid binaries by the buildid value.

And symfs is a normal file tree and perf searchs for binaryies
by the file name.

  lib
  - libc.so
  - ld.so

Tt's inappropriate to add symfs to .build-id dir becuase they
have different dirctory structure and perf searchs for them by
differnt ways.

So in this patch I add .buildid to symfs and got dirctory tree
like this:

  symfs
  - $(DSO_PREFIX)
      - .build-id
            - 3a
            - 84
  - libc.so
  - ld.so

Thanks
