Subject[PATCH 4.13 050/110] s390/perf: fix bug when creating per-thread event
Date
4.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Pu Hou <bjhoupu@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

commit fc3100d64f0ae383ae8d845989103da06d62763b upstream.

A per-thread event could not be created correctly like below:

perf record --per-thread -e rB0000 -- sleep 1
Error:
The sys_perf_event_open() syscall returned with 19 (No such device) for event (rB0000).
/bin/dmesg may provide additional information.
No CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS=y kernel support configured?

This bug was introduced by:

commit c311c797998c1e70eade463dd60b843da4f1a203
Author: Alexey Dobriyan <adobriyan@gmail.com>
Date: Mon May 8 15:56:15 2017 -0700

cpumask: make "nr_cpumask_bits" unsigned

If a per-thread event is not attached to any CPU, the cpu field
in struct perf_event is -1. The above commit converts the CPU number
to unsigned int, which result in an illegal CPU number.

Fixes: c311c797998c ("cpumask: make "nr_cpumask_bits" unsigned")
