Subject[PATCH] objtool: fix .cold. functions parent symbols search
Date
The way it is currently done it is possible for read_symbols() to find the
same symbol as parent for ".cold" functions. This leads to a bunch of
complications such as func length being set to 0 and a segfault in
add_switch_table(). Fix by copying the search string instead of modifying
it in place.
