Subject[PATCH] perf stat: wait for the correct child
Date
When packaging the perf userland application into an AppImage,
the wait() call in perf stat returned too early. It turned out
that some other child process exited, but not the one perf stat
launched:

~~~~~

This patch uses waitpid instead to ensure the call waits for the
debuggee application launched by perf stat. This fixes perf stat
when launched from an AppImage:

~~~~~
$ ./perf-x86_64.AppImage stat sleep 1
