Subject[PATCH 02/11] perf: Add PERF_EVENT_IOC_ID ioctl to return event ID
Date
From: "jolsa@redhat.com" <jolsa@redhat.com>

The only way to get the event ID is by reading the event fd,
followed by parsing the ID value out of the returned data.

While this is ok for current read format used by perf tool,
it is not ok when we use PERF_FORMAT_GROUP format.

With this format the data are returned for the whole group
and there's no way to find out what ID belongs to our fd
(if we are not group leader event).

Adding a simple ioctl that returns event primary ID for given fd.
