I looked at implementing your approach and it turns out to be much
more complicated
than what is already there.
I do not inject anything if I don't have to. I am waiting to see a
special MMAP of the
jitdump file to start inject jit mmaps. That could not change in your
scheme. I would
need to track MMAP records and check if they correspond to a jitdump. Note that
I may have to inject multiple jitdumps in one run of perf inject. In
that case, in the
deliver function, I would have to (1) either have all the jitdump MMAPs prepared
in order for all the jitdumps I have detected or (2) go through all
the jitdump current
head records to see which one matches. In (2) I would have to do this
not just when
I see an MMAP but for any event delivered: for each new event, compare its
timestamp to the timestamps of jitdump current record for ALL jitdump
files. For (1),
I need to build a global list of all jitdump records in for each
jitdump file, i.e, another
RB tree. And then pull them one by one out if I find an event with the
right timestamp.

I think (2) i more reasonable but requires quite some infrastructure
work in the jitdump
code. Most of the pieces are there, the RB tree needs to be added
obviously. I will
experiment with (2).
