Request for approval: Allow Java's ELF symtab reader to use separate debuginfo files

I think a better fix is to add the required gHotSpot* symbols to the mapfile so that they are always exported. This way jmap would work even if the debug symbols for libjvm.so weren't installed on the machine. I actually thought we already did this because we explicitly export a few vtbls for use by the SA but apparently we don't. I must have been thinking of windows where you have to explicitly export them or they won't show up at all. Anyway, adding this to the mapfiles will allow it work as is:
# SA symbols
Would this be acceptable?
