Subject[PATCH -tip ] [BUGFIX] perf probe: Fix to probe on symbols with optimization suffix
From
Date
Fix perf probe to probe on some symbols which have some
optimzation suffixes, e.g. ".part", ".isra", and ".constprop".
To fix this issue, instead of using DIE name, perf probe
uses symbol name found by dwfl_module_addrsym().

This also involves perf probe --vars operation update which
shows the symbol name instead of the DIE name.

Without this patch, putting a probe on an inlined function
which was compiled as a suffixed symbol will fail as below;

$ perf probe -v getname_flags
probe-definition(0): getname_flags
symbol:getname_flags file:(null) line:0 offset:0 return:0 lazy:(null)
0 arguments
Looking at the vmlinux_path (6 entries long)
Using /lib/modules/3.11.0+/build/vmlinux for symbols
found inline addr: 0xffffffff8119bb70
Probe point found: getname_flags+0
found inline addr: 0xffffffff8119bcb6
Probe point found: getname+6
found inline addr: 0xffffffff811a06a6
Probe point found: user_path_at_empty+6
find 3 probe_trace_events.
Opening /sys/kernel/debug//tracing/kprobe_events write=1
Added new events:
Writing event: p:probe/getname_flags getname_flags+0
Failed to write event: No such file or directory
Error: Failed to add events. (-1)

Because the debuginfo knows only the original (non suffix)
symbol name, it uses the original symbol for probe address
but the kernel (kallsyms) knows only suffixed symbol.
Then, the kernel rejects that original symbol.

This patch uses dwfl_module_addrsym() to get the correct
(suffixed) symbol from symtab when a probe point is found.
