Subject[PATCH -tip v2 0/6] perf script: add BTS analysis features
Hi Frederic, David,

This patch series adds the functions to analyze BTS logs to perf-script and,
makes perf-script more informative version 2.
The patches add the following functions.
- Output correct IP address
- Output "(unknown)" as symbol name when perf-script can't resolve symbols.
- Output "[unknown]" as DSO name when perf-script can't resolve DSO path.
- Resolve DSOs and symbols for user-space address
- Resolve DSOs and symbols for BTS's branch_from addresses
- Show the offset of symbols with the 'offs' field specifier.
- Resolve the real path of [kernel.kallsym] using
'--show-kernel-path' option.

First, get the BTS log with the following command.
# perf record -e branches:u -c 1 -d <command>

Second, analyze that trace data.
# perf script -f ip,addr,sym,offs,dso [--show-kernel-path]
This command's output format is:
<branch_to addr> <branch_to function+offset> <branch_to DSO> <branch_from addr> <branch_from function+offset> <branch_from DSO>

Output sample:
# perf record -e branches:u -c 1 -d ls
# perf script -f ip,addr,sym,dso,offs --show-kernel-path

It shows the tracee application's execution path.

- add source code path field, line number field ...etc.
- add record/report script to use easily and, show human-friendly output.
- filtering kernel functions using scripts

Changes in v2:
- add a bug fix patch that prints correct IP address
- output the magic word "(unknown)" as symbol name when perf-script can't
resolve symbols.
- output "[unknown]" as DSO name when perf-script can't resolve DSO path.
- change the way to output offset of symbols from '--show-symbol-offset' to
'offs' field.
- clean up codes.



Akihiro Nagai (6):
perf script: add option resolving vmlinux path
perf script: add the offset field specifier
perf script: print DSOs and symbols for BTS branch_from addr
perf script: resolve DSOs and symbols for user-space
perf script: add magic word to indicate the failure of resolving symbols
[BUGFIX] perf script: print correct IP address
