Subject[PATCHv2 0/5] perf tools: Share map groups within process
Date
hi,
this patchset moves thread's map_groups to be dynamically
allocated and shared within process threads.

The main benefit would be to be able to look up memory
map from any thread that belongs to the process.

This implements one of the solution ideas for issue
described by Don in following thread:
http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=139403876017159&w=2

v2 changes:
- changing mmap groups allocation strategy - have it allocated
always when thread is created, which seems less confusing
and less error prone. The previous strategy was to allocate
it when it's actually used.
- fix test compilation for i386

RFC changes:
- added automated test for thread map groups get/put methods
- fix reference count for case described by Namhyung
- rename the mmap-events.c test to mmap-thread-lookup.c
- added PROT_EXEC to mmap call in tests/mmap-thread-lookup.c
as it's not implied by default on all archs (Namhyung)
- lazy mg allocation in thread__find_addr_map (Namhyung)
- fix compilation failures (Arnaldo)

thanks,
jirka
