Subject[PATCH 1/3] perf: record TRACE_INFO only if using tracepoints and SAMPLE_RAW
Date
From: Tom Zanussi <tzanussi@gmail.com>

The current perf code implicitly assumes SAMPLE_RAW means tracepoints
are being used, but doesn't check for that. It happily records the
TRACE_INFO even if SAMPLE_RAW is used without tracepoints, but when the
perf data is read it won't go any further when it finds TRACE_INFO but
no tracepoints, and displays misleading errors.

This adds a check for both in perf-record, and won't record TRACE_INFO
unless both are true. This at least allows perf report -D to dump raw
events, and avoids triggering a misleading error condition in perf
trace. It doesn't actually enable the non-tracepoint raw events to be
displayed in perf trace, since perf trace currently only deals with
tracepoint events.
