perf symbols: Fix ELF header errors during "perf kmem record"
Pekka Enberg [Sun, 22 Nov 2009 10:29:44 +0000 (12:29 +0200)]
The write_event() function in builtin-record.c writes out all
mmap()'d DSOs including non-ELF files like GNOME resource files
and such.

Therefore, check for ELF_K_ELF in filename__read_build_id()
before attempting to read the ELF header with gelf_getehdr().

Fixes the following error messages when running "perf kmem
record":

  penberg@penberg-laptop:~/src/linux/tools/perf$ perf kmem record
  ^C[ perf record: Woken up 2 times to write data ]
  [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.753 MB perf.data (~32885 samples) ]
  filename__read_build_id: cannot get elf header.
  filename__read_build_id: cannot get elf header.
  filename__read_build_id: cannot get elf header.
