perf probe: Skip end-of-sequence and non statement lines

Skip end-of-sequence and non-statement lines while walking through lines
list.

The "end-of-sequence" line information means:

 "the current address is that of the first byte after the
  end of a sequence of target machine instructions."
 (DWARF version 4 spec 6.2.2)

This actually means out of scope and we can not probe on it.

On the other hand, the statement lines (is_stmt) means:

 "the current instruction is a recommended breakpoint location.
  A recommended breakpoint location is intended to “represent”
  a line, a statement and/or a semantically distinct subpart
  of a statement."

 (DWARF version 4 spec 6.2.2)

So, non-statement line info also should be skipped.

These can reduce unneeded probe points and also avoid an error.

E.g. without this patch:

  # perf probe -a "clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1"
  Added new events:
    probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask (on clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1)
    probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask_1 (on clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1)
    probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask_2 (on clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1)
    probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask_3 (on clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1)
    probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask_4 (on clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1)

  You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

  	perf record -e probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask_4 -aR sleep 1

  #

This puts 5 probes on one line, but acutally it's not inlined function.
This is because there are many non statement instructions at the
function prologue.

With this patch:

  # perf probe -a "clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1"
  Added new event:
    probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask (on clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1)

  You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

  	perf record -e probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask -aR sleep 1

  #

Now perf-probe skips unneeded addresses.

Committer testing:

Slightly different results, but similar:

Before:

  # uname -a
  Linux quaco 5.3.8-200.fc30.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Oct 29 14:46:22 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
  #
  # perf probe -a "clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1"
  Added new events:
    probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask (on clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1)
    probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask_1 (on clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1)
    probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask_2 (on clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1)

  You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

  	perf record -e probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask_2 -aR sleep 1

  #

After:

  # perf probe -a "clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1"
  Added new event:
    probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask (on clear_tasks_mm_cpumask:1)

  You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

  	perf record -e probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask -aR sleep 1

  # perf probe -l
    probe:clear_tasks_mm_cpumask (on clear_tasks_mm_cpumask@kernel/cpu.c)
  #
