Subject: [PATCH] bloat-o-meter: Support comparing library archives

Library archives (.a) usually contain multiple object files so their
output of nm --size-sort contains lines like:

<ommitted for brevity>
00000000000003a8 t run_test

<ommitted for brevity>

bloat-o-meter currently doesn't handle them which results in errors
when calling .split() on them. Fix this by simply ignoring them. This
enables diffing subsystems which generate built-in.a files.
