[PATCH 1/2] perf events: Fix mmap offset determination

Fix buggy-looking code which unnecessarily adjusts the file offset
fields read from /proc/*/maps.

This may have gone unnoticed since the offset is usually 0 (and the
logic in util/symbol.c may work incorrectly for other offset values).

I make assumptions about the intended design here.  The cover note
accompanying this patch contains a more detailed explanation.
