Subject[PATCH V2] perf tools: Fix bug for perf kvm report without guestmount.
Date
Currently, if we use perf kvm --guestkallsyms --guestmodules report,
we can not get the perf information from perf data file. The all sample
are shown as unknown.

Reproducing steps:
# perf kvm --guestkallsyms /tmp/kallsyms --guestmodules /tmp/modules record -a sleep 1
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.624 MB perf.data.guest (~27260 samples) ]
# perf kvm --guestkallsyms /tmp/kallsyms --guestmodules /tmp/modules report |grep %
100.00% [guest/6471] [unknown] [g] 0xffffffff8164f330

This bug was introduced by 207b57926 (perf kvm: Fix regression with guest machine creation).

return perf_session__find_host_machine(session);
In original code, it uses perf_session__find_machine(), it means we deliver symbol to machine
which has the same pid, if no machine found, deliver it to *default* guest. But if we use
perf_session__findnew_machine() here, if no machine was found, new machine with pid will be built
and added. Then the default guest which with pid == 0 will never get a symbol.
And because the new machine initialized here has no kernel map created, the symbol delivered to
it will be marked as "unknown".

This patch here is to revert commit 207b57926 and fix the SEGFAULT bug in another way.
