Subject: [PATCH v3 0/3] Improvements for kallsyms__parse

kallsyms__parse is called 4 times during perf record startup. Add a
benchmark to measure its performance. Transition it to using the api
io.h buffered reading, improving performance by ~8% or saving ~5% from
perf record start up time.

v3. Fixed a link error report in hex2u64 by jolsa@...hat.com.
v2. Fix the err return value for success, error reported by
    jolsa@...hat.com. Add clean-up for hex2u64.

Ian Rogers (3):
  perf bench: add kallsyms parsing
  lib kallsyms: parse using io api
  lib kallsyms: move hex2u64 out of header
