So, tools/perf/util/symbol.c, function dso__load(), it will have this
loop:


/*
* Read the build id if possible. This is required for
* DSO_BINARY_TYPE__BUILDID_DEBUGINFO to work
*/
if (!dso->has_build_id && is_regular_file(dso->long_name)) {
__symbol__join_symfs(name, PATH_MAX, dso->long_name);
if (filename__read_build_id(name, build_id, BUILD_ID_SIZE) > 0)
dso__set_build_id(dso, build_id);
}

/*
* Iterate over candidate debug images.
* Keep track of "interesting" ones (those which have a symtab, dynsym,
* and/or opd section) for processing.
*/
for (i = 0; i < DSO_BINARY_TYPE__SYMTAB_CNT; i++) {

if (dso__read_binary_type_filename(dso, symtab_type, root_dir, name, PATH_MAX))


-------------------

So the glibc file _has_ a build id, it reads it and then will try to
find a file that has that build id, that 'name' variable will have
the file being tried, which may be, for instance, at:

[acme@jouet ~]$ perf buildid-list -i /lib64/libc-2.25.so
7a4787e7c1263dc25461a7b2f2abd2acaa186102
[acme@jouet ~]$ ls -la /usr/lib/debug/.build-id/7a/4787e7c1263dc25461a7b2f2abd2acaa186102
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 33 Oct 11 09:49 /usr/lib/debug/.build-id/7a/4787e7c1263dc25461a7b2f2abd2acaa186102 -> ../../../../../lib64/libc-2.25.so
[acme@jouet ~]$

etc.

So perhaps we can have a routine that does just that loop and prints the
files it finds with the debuginfo they have to help tell which files
where considered?

But perhaps the message I suggested may be good enough?
