Subject[PATCH] perf: Do not require /lib/modules/* on a guest
Date
For some types of work loads and special guest environments, you might
have a kernel that has no kernel modules. The perf kvm record tool
fails instantiate vmlinux maps when the kernel modules directory
cannot be opened, even though the kallsyms has been properly
processed. This leads to a perf kvm report that has no guest symbols
resolved.

This patch changes the failure to locate kernel modules to be
non-fatal.
