Pipeline is broken by this commit in your urgent (but not yet pushed) tree:

commit 47832ad3e101e470a90fab9b4915549aaee03662
Author: Dmitry Antipov <>
Date: Fri Jun 8 16:23:27 2012 +0400

perf report: Fix event name reporting in cross analysis

Use trace_find_event to find event name before looking through /sys
files. This helps 'perf report' to show real event names instead of
'unknown:unknown' when processing recorded on another

pevent might be NULL and pevent_find_event dereferences it causing a crash.
