SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/3] perf probe: Set retprobe flag when probe in address-based alternative mode

And when is that happens, can you explain? Because I tried to follow your
instructions, but in my case it worked in the same way before and after your
patch.

Can you please provide more context for reviewing your patch?

Here are my results:

Before:

[root@ssdandy ~]# perf probe -v --add='sys_write%return'
probe-definition(0): sys_write%return
symbol:sys_write file:(null) line:0 offset:0 return:1 lazy:(null)
0 arguments
Using /root/.debug/.build-id/dd/32e51921ede0fd46f034091b7f6a0f2e01ebda for symbols
Could not open debuginfo. Try to use symbols.
Opening /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/kprobe_events write=1
Added new event:
Writing event: r:probe/sys_write sys_write+0
probe:sys_write (on sys_write%return)

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

perf record -e probe:sys_write -aR sleep 1
[root@ssdandy ~]# cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/kprobe_events
r:probe/sys_write sys_write

Remove it:

[root@ssdandy ~]# perf probe --del *:*
Removed event: probe:sys_write

After:

[root@ssdandy ~]# perf probe -v --add='sys_write%return'
probe-definition(0): sys_write%return
symbol:sys_write file:(null) line:0 offset:0 return:1 lazy:(null)
0 arguments
Using /root/.debug/.build-id/dd/32e51921ede0fd46f034091b7f6a0f2e01ebda for symbols
Could not open debuginfo. Try to use symbols.
Opening /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/kprobe_events write=1
Added new event:
Writing event: r:probe/sys_write sys_write+0
probe:sys_write (on sys_write%return)

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

perf record -e probe:sys_write -aR sleep 1

[root@ssdandy ~]#
[root@ssdandy ~]# cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/kprobe_events
r:probe/sys_write sys_write

Humm, noticed one other problem, but not with your patch, about this message:

"Could not open debuginfo. Try to use symbols."

That is really not clear, specially that "try to use symbols" :-)

[root@ssdandy ~]# ls -la /root/.debug/.build-id/dd/32e51921ede0fd46f034091b7f6a0f2e01ebda

I.e. it managed to read the debuginfo, its just that it has no symbols in it :-)

Anyway, digression ended.
