Cute :) But you haven't convinced me that we need to mangle the symbol
or the return string. Please just keep it simple. If you want to make
dwfl_module_addrname/sym() to work on ppc64 like we agreed I am fine
reviewing the implementation, but mangling the symbol name/return string
shouldn't be part of it.
