This needs to be specific to ELF v2 ABI, so you'll need to check 
_CALL_ELF. See commit d5c2e2c17ae1d6 ("perf probe ppc64le: Prefer symbol 
table lookup over DWARF") for an example.

I don't think we have documented this in the kernel anywhere, but this 
is specific to the ELF v2 ABI and is described there:
- 2.3.2.1.  Function Prologue: 
  http://cdn.openpowerfoundation.org/wp-content/uploads/resources/leabi/content/dbdoclet.50655240___RefHeading___Toc377640597.html
- 3.4.1.  Symbol Values:

As documented in the links above, the right way to identify local entry 
point (LEP) is by looking at the symbol table. Falling back to using a 
hardcoded offset of 8 is a reasonable workaround if we don't have access 
to the symbol table.
