Subject[PATCH 1/6] perf tools: Fix split_kallsyms_for_kcore for trampoline symbols
Kallsyms symbols do not have a size, so the size becomes the distance to
the next symbol. Consequently the recently added trampoline symbols end up
with large sizes because the trampolines are some distance from one another
and the main kernel map. However, symbols that end outside their map can
disrupt the symbol tree because, after mapping, it can appear incorrectly
that they overlap other symbols. Add logic to truncate symbol size to the
end of the corresponding map.

Fixes: d83212d5dd67 ("kallsyms, x86: Export addresses of PTI entry trampolines")
