perf python: Remove dependency on 'machine' methods
The python binding still doesn't provide symbol resolving facilities, but the recent addition of the trace_event__register_resolver() function made it add as a dependency the machine__resolve_kernel_addr() method, that in turn drags all the symbol resolving code. The problem: [root@zoo ~]# perf test -v python 17: Try 'import perf' in python, checking link problems : --- start --- test child forked, pid 6853 Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> ImportError: /tmp/build/perf/python/ undefined symbol: machine__resolve_kernel_addr test child finished with -1 ---- end ---- Try 'import perf' in python, checking link problems: FAILED! [root@zoo ~]# Fix it by requiring this function to receive the resolver as a parameter, just like pevent_register_function_resolver(), i.e. do not explicitely refer to an object file not included in tools/perf/util/python-ext-sources.
