I tried this problem in another way, I'd like to share it here.

First: create two uprobes:

# ./perf probe --exec /home/wangnan/perf dso__new%return %ax
Added new event:
probe_perf:dso__new (on dso__new%return in /home/wangnan/perf with %ax)

You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

perf record -e probe_perf:dso__new -aR sleep 1

# ./perf probe --exec /home/wangnan/perf dso__delete dso
Added new event:
probe_perf:dso__delete (on dso__delete in /home/wangnan/perf with dso)

You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

perf record -e probe_perf:dso__delete -aR sleep 1


Then start test:

# ./perf record -g -e probe_perf:dso__new -e probe_perf:dso__delete
./perf probe vfs_read
Added new event:
probe:vfs_read (on vfs_read)

You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

perf record -e probe:vfs_read -aR sleep 1

[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.048 MB perf.data (178 samples) ]


From the perf report result I know two dso objects are leak:

90 probe_perf:dso__new `
88 probe_perf:dso__delete


Then convert output to CTF:

$ ./perf data convert --to-ctf ./out.ctf


With a python script, try to find the exact leak objects (I'm not good
at python,
I believe we can do this with much shorter script):

$ cat refcnt.py
from babeltrace import TraceCollection

tc = TraceCollection();
tc.add_trace('./out.ctf', 'ctf')
objs = {}
for event in tc.events:
if event.name.startswith('probe_perf:dso__new'):
if event['arg1'] not in objs:
objs[event['arg1']] = 1
if event.name.startswith('probe_perf:dso__delete'):
if event['dso'] in objs:
objs[event['dso']] = 0

for x in objs:
if objs[x] is 0:
continue
print("0x%x" % x)

$ python3 ./refcnt.py
0x34cb350
0x34d4640

Then from perf script's result, search for the two address:
