Subject[PATCH v16 13/15] perf tools: Enable overwrite settings
Date
This patch allows following config terms and option:

Globally setting events to overwrite;

# perf record --overwrite ...

Set specific events to be overwrite or no-overwrite.

# perf record --event cycles/overwrite/ ...
# perf record --event cycles/no-overwrite/ ...

Add missing config terms and update config term array size because the
longest string length is changed.

For overwritable events, automatically select attr.write_backward since
perf requires it to be backward for reading.

Test result:
# perf record --overwrite -e syscalls:*enter_nanosleep* usleep 1
[ perf record: Woken up 2 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.011 MB perf.data (1 samples) ]
# perf evlist -v
syscalls:sys_enter_nanosleep: type: 2, size: 112, config: 0x134, { sample_period, sample_freq }: 1, sample_type: IP|TID|TIME|CPU|PERIOD|RAW, disabled: 1, inherit: 1, mmap: 1, comm: 1, enable_on_exec: 1, task: 1, sample_id_all: 1, exclude_guest: 1, mmap2: 1, comm_exec: 1, write_backward: 1
# Tip: use 'perf evlist --trace-fields' to show fields for tracepoint events

'perf record --dry-run -e' can act as a BPF script compiler if llvm.dump-obj
in config file is set to true.

+--overwrite::
+Makes all events use an overwritable ring buffer. An overwritable ring
+buffer works like a flight recorder: when it gets full, the kernel will
+overwrite the oldest records, that thus will never make it to the
+perf.data file.
+
+When '--overwrite' and '--switch-output' are used perf records and drops
+events until it receives a signal, meaning that something unusual was
+detected that warrants taking a snapshot of the most current events,
+those fitting in the ring buffer at that moment.
+
+'overwrite' attribute can also be set or canceled for an event using
+config terms. For example: 'cycles/overwrite/' and 'instructions/no-overwrite/'.
