Heh, I wasn't actually aware of this one, thanks! Yeah, they're not
compatible or identical in scope, only in inspiration in the problem
space (debug data may be somewhere else). The buildid-based search
elsewhere in valgrind (find_debug_file()) would be a good place to add
the new quiet call. If that fails, the old client/server
filename-based logic could still be retained as a fallback.
