Subject[PATCH v3 10/13] perf report: cache failed lookups of inlined frames
Date
When no inlined frames could be found for a given address,
we did not store this information anywhere. That means we
potentially do the costly inliner lookup repeatedly for
cases where we know it can never succeed.

This patch makes dso__parse_addr_inlines always return a
valid inline_node. It will be empty when no inliners are
found. This enables us to cache the empty list in the DSO,
thereby improving the performance when many addresses
fail to find the inliners.

For my trivial example, the performance impact is already
quite significant:

Before:

~~~~~
Performance counter stats for 'perf report --stdio --inline -g srcline -s srcline' (5 runs):
