I still have to read the entire thread, but this definetely should
receive "struct perf_sample", i.e. the parsed sample and the 'struct
thread' from where it can get the comm, etc

Look at the process_event for builtin-script.c:


I'd change it to:

scripting_ops->process_event(event, sample, thread);

Or even short circuit it completely modulo debugging, becoming:

static int process_sample_event(union perf_event *event,
struct perf_sample *sample,
struct perf_session *session)
if (debug_mode) {
if (sample->time < last_timestamp) {
pr_err("Samples misordered, previous: %" PRIu64
" this: %" PRIu64 "\n", last_timestamp,
last_timestamp = sample->time;
} else {
scripting_ops->process_event(event, sample, session);
session->hists.stats.total_period += sample->period;
return 0;

Script modules may then do their thread accounting if comms are asked
for, etc.
