Subject: [PATCH] perf probe: Fix getting the kernel map

Since commit 4d99e4136580 ("perf machine: Workaround missing maps for x86
PTI entry trampolines"), perf tools has been creating more than one kernel
map, however 'perf probe' assumed there could be only one.

Fix by using machine__kernel_map() to get the main kernel map.
