4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Kan Liang <kan.liang@intel.com>

commit ed6c166cc7dc329736cace3affd2df984fb22ec8 upstream.

Fixes a perf diff regression issue which was introduced by commit
5baecbcd9c9a ("perf symbols: we can now read separate debug-info files
based on a build ID")

The binary name could be same when perf diff different binaries. Build
id is used to distinguish between them.
However, the previous patch assumes the same binary name has same build
id. So it overwrites the build id according to the binary name,
regardless of whether the build id is set or not.

Check the has_build_id in dso__load. If the build id is already set, use
it.

Before the fix:

  $ perf diff 1.perf.data 2.perf.data
  # Event 'cycles'
  #
  # Baseline    Delta  Shared Object     Symbol
  # ........  .......  ................  .............................
  #
    99.83%  -99.80%  tchain_edit       [.] f2
     0.12%  +99.81%  tchain_edit       [.] f3
     0.02%   -0.01%  [ixgbe]           [k] ixgbe_read_reg

  After the fix:
  $ perf diff 1.perf.data 2.perf.data
  # Event 'cycles'
  #
  # Baseline    Delta  Shared Object     Symbol
  # ........  .......  ................  .............................
  #
    99.83%   +0.10%  tchain_edit       [.] f3
     0.12%   -0.08%  tchain_edit       [.] f2
