Subject: [PATCH v2] perf report: Fix a no annotate browser displayed issue

Fix a crash bug when perform 'perf report --stdio'.

The reason is that we init the symbol annotation only in browser mode,
it doesn't allocate/init resources for stdio mode.

So now in hist_iter__branch_callback(), it will return directly if it's
not in browser mode.

initial post
When enabling '-b' option in perf record, for example,

perf record -b ...
perf report

and then browsing the annotate browser from perf report, it would
be failed (annotate browser can't be displayed).

It's because the '.add_entry_cb' op of struct report is overwritten
by hist_iter__branch_callback() in builtin-report.c. But this function
doesn't do something like mapping symbols and sources. So next,
do_annotate() will return directly.

        notes = symbol__annotation(act->ms.sym);
        if (!notes->src)
                return 0;

This patch adds the lost code to hist_iter__branch_callback (
refer to hist_iter__report_callback).
