    Subject[PATCH 1/7] perf record: Avoid synthesizing mmap() for all processes in per-thread mode
    From: Stephane Eranian <>

    A bug was introduced by commit c45c6ea2e5c57960dc67e00294c2b78e9540c007.

    Perf record was scanning /proc/PID to create synthetic PERF_RECOR_MMAP
    entries even though it was running in per-thread mode. There was a bogus
    check to select what mmaps to synthesize. We only need all processes in
    system-wide mode.
