perf test: Look forward for symbol aliases

Not just before, fixing these false positives:

[acme@mica linux]$ perf test -v 1
 1: vmlinux symtab matches kallsyms:
--- start ---
Looking at the vmlinux_path (6 entries long)
Using //lib/modules/2.6.37-rc5-00180-ge06b6bf/build/vmlinux for symbols
0xffffffff81058dc0: diff name v: sys_vm86old k: sys_ni_syscall
0xffffffff81058dc0: diff name v: sys_vm86 k: sys_ni_syscall
0xffffffff81058dc0: diff name v: sys_subpage_prot k: sys_ni_syscall
0xffffffff810b5f7c: diff name v: probe_kernel_write k: __probe_kernel_write
0xffffffff810b5fe5: diff name v: probe_kernel_read k: __probe_kernel_read

0xffffffff81384a98: diff name v: __sched_text_start k: sleep_on_common
0xffffffff81386750: diff name v: __sched_text_end k: _raw_spin_trylock
0xffffffff8138cee8: diff name v: __irqentry_text_start k: do_IRQ
0xffffffff8138f079: diff name v: __start_notes k: _etext
0xffffffff8138f079: diff name v: __stop_notes k: _etext
---- end ----
vmlinux symtab matches kallsyms: FAILED!

[acme@mica linux]$

Some are weak functions, others are just markers, etc. They get in the rb tree
with the same addr, so we need to look around to find the symbol with the same

We were looking just at the previous entries with the same addr, look forward
