I think the root cause is tid==-1. So the index of hashtable will be -1.
The patch as below should fix it.

diff --git a/tools/perf/util/machine.h b/tools/perf/util/machine.h
index e6d5381..3c564b8 100644
--- a/tools/perf/util/machine.h

}

static inline

There should be another issue which was introduced by
33013b9a5607 ("perf machine: Optimize a bit the machine__findnew_thread() methods")
It should use tid not pid to get the threads.

diff --git a/tools/perf/util/machine.c b/tools/perf/util/machine.c

+ return ____machine__findnew_thread(machine, machine__threads(machine, tid), pid, tid, true);
}

They are small fixes. I think it's better to merge them with the old patches.
Should I include the modified hashtable patches in V3?

Thanks,
Kan
