so what's the best way to do the equivelent of addr2line on something like
this, now that we aren't allowed to know the RIP anymore?

I probably knew at one point but I've spent the last 3 months doing 6502
assembly language Demoscene coding and so apparently I've forgotten
everything I once knew about x86_64 kernel interfaces. (As can be
imagined, Demoscene coding work is a lot more mentally rewarding than
perf_fuzzer work).
