gas prior to binutils commit fbdf9406b0 (appears in 2.27) outputs symbol
table entries resulting from .file in reverse order. If we get two
consecutive file symbols, prefer the first one if that names an object
file or has a directory component (to cover multiply compiled files).

This is the same workaround that was applied in Xen commit d37d63d4b548
("symbols: prefix static symbols with their source file names") for
Xen's internal symbol table.

This fixes building a livepatch for XSA-243.
