Subject: [PATCH bpf-next 06/16] libbpf: ensure ELF symbols table is found before further ELF processing

libbpf ELF parsing logic might need symbols available before ELF parsing is
completed, so we need to make sure that symbols table section is found in
a separate pass before all the subsequent sections are processed.
