      perf: Fix inconsistency between IP and callchain sampling · 339ce1a4
      Anton Blanchard authored
      When running perf across all cpus with backtracing (-a -g), sometimes we
      get samples without associated backtraces:
      
          23.44%         init  [kernel]                     [k] restore
          11.46%         init                       eeba0c  [k] 0x00000000eeba0c
           6.77%      swapper  [kernel]                     [k] .perf_ctx_adjust_freq
           5.73%         init  [kernel]                     [k] .__trace_hcall_entry
           4.69%         perf  libc-2.9.so                  [.] 0x0000000006bb8c
                             |
                             |--11.11%-- 0xfffa941bbbc
      
      It turns out the backtrace code has a check for the idle task and the IP
      sampling does not. This creates problems when profiling an interrupt
      heavy workload (in my case 10Gbit ethernet) since we get no backtraces
      for interrupts received while idle (ie most of the workload).
      
      Right now x86 and sh check that current is not NULL, which should never
      happen so remove that too.
      
      Idle task's exclusion must be performed from the core code, on top
      of perf_event_attr:exclude_idle.

      perf buildid-cache: Add new command to manage build-id cache · ef12a141
      Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo authored
      For now it just has operations to examine a given file, find its
      build-id and add or remove it to/from the cache.
      
      Useful, for instance, when adding binaries sent together with a
      perf.data file, so that we can add them to the cache and have
      the tools find it when resolving symbols.
      
      It'll also manage the size of the cache like 'ccache' does.

      perf: Better order flexible and pinned scheduling · 329c0e01
      Frederic Weisbecker authored
      When a task gets scheduled in. We don't touch the cpu bound events
      so the priority order becomes:
      
      	cpu pinned, cpu flexible, task pinned, task flexible.
      
      So schedule out cpu flexibles when a new task context gets in
      and correctly order the groups to schedule in:
      
      	task pinned, cpu flexible, task flexible.
      
      Cpu pinned groups don't need to be touched at this time.

      perf: Don't schedule out/in pinned events on task tick · 7defb0f8
      Frederic Weisbecker authored
      We don't need to schedule in/out pinned events on task tick,
      now that pinned and flexible groups can be scheduled separately.

      perf: Allow pinned and flexible groups to be scheduled separately · 5b0311e1
      Frederic Weisbecker authored
      Tune the scheduling helpers so that we can choose to schedule either
      pinned and/or flexible groups from a context.
      
      And while at it, refactor a bit the naming of these helpers to make
      these more consistent and flexible.
      
      There is no (intended) change in scheduling behaviour in this
      patch.

      tracing/kprobe: Update kprobe tracing self test for new syntax · 231e36f4
      Masami Hiramatsu authored
      Update kprobe tracing self test for new syntax (it supports
      deleting individual probes, and drops $argN support)
      and behavior change (new probes are disabled in default).
      
      This selftest includes the following checks:
      
       - Adding function-entry probe and return probe with arguments.
       - Enabling these probes.
       - Deleting it individually.

      perf probe: Fix build error of builtin-probe.c · 0eda7385
      Hitoshi Mitake authored
      I got this build error when building tip tree:
      
      | cc1: warnings being treated as errors
      | builtin-probe.c:123: error: 'opt_show_lines' defined but not used
      
      This error is caused by:
      
      | #ifndef NO_LIBDWARF
      |	OPT_CALLBACK('L', "line", NULL,
      |		     "FUNC[:RLN[+NUM|:RLN2]]|SRC:ALN[+NUM|:ALN2]",
      |		     "Show source code lines.", opt_show_lines),
      | #endif
      
      My environment defines NO_LIBDWARF, so gcc treated
      opt_show_lines() as garbage. So I moved opt_show_lines() into
      #ifndef NO_LIBDWARF ... #endif block.

      perf: Fix implicit declaration of getline in util.c · 69e3f52d
      Frederic Weisbecker authored
      getline() is considered as undeclared in util/util.c because
      it includes string.h, that in turn includes stdio.h, without
      having defined _GNU_SOURCE.
      
      But util.c also includes util.h that handles the _GNU_SOURCE and
      all the needed inclusions already. Let's include only util.h
      and sys/mman.h which is the only one header not handled by
      util.h
      
      This fixes the following build error:
      
       util/util.c: In function 'slow_copyfile':
       util/util.c:49: erreur: implicit declaration of function
       'getline' util/util.c:49: erreur: nested extern declaration of 'getline'
