I have a bigger NUMA testbox where perf sampling (perf top, perf
record, etc.) stopped working (perf stat is fine), and I've
bisected it back to the above commit.

b52956c961be3a04182ae7b776623531601e0fb7 is the first bad commit

Checking out eca1c3e3f937 works fine, b52956c961b is broken,
repeatedly - so the bisection is reliable.

One symptom is no sampling records in the perf.data:

phoenix:~> perf record -a sleep 1
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.023 MB perf.data (~988 samples) ]
phoenix:~> perf report --stdio
Warning:
The perf.data file has no samples!

The later fixes to b52956c9, such as:

6b1bee9035d4: perf tools: fix broken perf record -a mode

did not fix this system - it's still broken as of today's -tip.

Another system running the same kernel does not exhibit this
problem, so it's somehow specific to this system.

I have not looked deep into this, let me know if you need more
data.

Thanks,

Ingo
