+ * The dso__data_* external interface provides following functions:

+ * dso__data_close
+ * dso__data_read_offset

+ *
+ * Please refer to the dso.c object code for each function and

+ * dso file descriptor caching.
+ *
+ * The dso__data* interface allows caching of opened file descriptors
+ * to speed up the dso data accesses. The idea is to leave the file
+ * descriptor opened ideally for the whole life of the dso object.
+ *
+ * The current usage of the dso__data_* interface is as follows:
+ *
+ * Get DSO's fd:
+ * int fd = dso__data_fd(dso, machine);
+ * USE 'fd' SOMEHOW
+ *
+ * Read DSO's data:
+ * n = dso__data_read_offset(dso_0, &machine, 0, buf, BUFSIZE);
+ * n = dso__data_read_addr(dso_0, &machine, 0, buf, BUFSIZE);
+ *
+ * Eventually close DSO's fd:
+ * dso__data_close(dso);
+ *
+ * It is not necessary to close the DSO object data file. Each time new
+ * DSO data file is opened, the limit (RLIMIT_NOFILE/2) is checked. Once
+ * it is crossed, the oldest opened DSO object is closed.
+ *
+ * The dso__delete function calls close_dso function to ensure the
+ * data file descriptor gets closed/unmapped before the dso object
+ * is freed.
+ *
+ * TODO
