Subject[PATCH] perf evsel: Fix incorrect precise_ip in default event name
Date
When no event is specified with -e option, perf will specify a
"cycles" event with the highest level of precision available in
perf_event_attr.precise_ip as the default event. But the evsel name
shows an incorrect precise ip, fix it.

For example, with a highest precision perf_event_attr.precise_ip = 2,
the evsel name "cycles:ppp" shows a wrong precision available.

Before:
$./perf record sleep 1
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.014 MB perf.data (21 samples) ]
$./perf evlist -v
cycles:ppp: size: 112, { sample_period, sample_freq }: 4000,
sample_type: IP|TID|TIME|PERIOD, disabled: 1, inherit: 1, mmap: 1,
comm: 1, freq: 1, enable_on_exec: 1, task: 1, precise_ip: 2,
sample_id_all: 1, exclude_guest: 1, mmap2: 1, comm_exec: 1

After:
$./perf record sleep 1
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.014 MB perf.data (16 samples) ]
$./perf evlist -v
cycles:pp: size: 112, { sample_period, sample_freq }: 4000,
sample_type: IP|TID|TIME|PERIOD, disabled: 1, inherit: 1, mmap: 1,
comm: 1, freq: 1, enable_on_exec: 1, task: 1, precise_ip: 2,
sample_id_all: 1, exclude_guest: 1, mmap2: 1, comm_exec: 1
