I've tried debian 9 and found this issue is another reason.

Originally, I reported above, but that is not correct, when I cleaned
up the command line, I missed important piece -- -static.

I've tested several binaries with different gcc, and found that
- Even with linaro-gcc 6.3.1, this issue happened.
- But natively build binary with gcc-6.3 (stretch) I didn't see it.
- Building binary with -static, it happened even with native binary 6.3.
- And I saw this happened even on x86-64 with -static.

So, I think the correct subject is

"perf: dwarf unwind doesn't work correctly with -static"

Thank you,
