Subject[PATCH V5 0/3] perf/x86/amd: AMD Family 16h Data Breakpoint Extensions
Date
From: Suravee Suthikulpanit <suravee.suthikulpanit@amd.com>

Frederic, this is the rebase of the V4 patch onto the linux-3.12.0-rc3 (linux.git),
and retest.

The following patchset enables hardware breakpoint bp_len greater than
HW_BREAKPOINT_LEN_8 on AMD Family 16h and later.

$ perf stat -e mem:0x1000/16:w a.out
^^
bp_len

This will count writes to [0x1000 ~ 0x1010)

V5:
* Rebase onto 3.12.0-rc3.
* Modify the tools/perf/util/parse-events.y due to change in
parse_events_add_breakpoint().

V4:
Even more per Oleg's suggestion:
* Further simplify info->len and info->mask setting switch statement

V3:
More per Oleg's suggestion:
* Use already existing bp_len instead of changing userland API and
in kernel turn bp_len into proper AMD hardware breakpoint address
mask.

V2:
Per Oleg's suggestions:
* Moved testing of bp_addr_mask to validate_hw_breakpoint()
* Changed perf tool syntax to mem:<addr>[/addr_mask][:access]


Jacob Shin (3):
perf/x86/amd: AMD support for bp_len > HW_BREAKPOINT_LEN_8
perf tools: allow user to specify hardware breakpoint bp_len
perf tools: add hardware breakpoint bp_len test cases
