No. The problem is when sample is taken at 'callq' perf is unable to
unwind correctly, even with dwarf and user stack.

I have posted a detail analysis in [1] (rechecked, you are in cc-list).
Test code is here:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/time.h>

static volatile int x = 0;

int funcc(void)
{
struct timeval tv1, tv2;
unsigned long us1, us2;

gettimeofday(&tv1, NULL);

us1 = tv1.tv_sec * 1000000 + tv1.tv_usec;

while(1) {
x = x + 100;
gettimeofday(&tv2, NULL);
us2 = tv2.tv_sec * 1000000 + tv2.tv_usec;
if (us2 - us1 >= 3000000)
break;
}
return x;
}
int funcb(void) { return funcc();}
int funca(void) { return funcb();}
int main() { funca(); return 0;}

Thank you.
