Subject[PATCH] perf/stat: fix bug in handling events in error state
Date
From: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com>

(This is a patch has been sitting in the Intel CQM/CMT driver series
for a while, despite not depend on it. Sending it now independently
since the series is being discarded.)

When an event is in error state, read() returns 0
instead of sizeof() buffer. In certain modes, such
as interval printing, ignoring the 0 return value
may cause bogus count deltas to be computed and
thus invalid results printed.

This patch fixes this problem by modifying read_counters()
to mark the event as not scaled (scaled = -1) to force
the printout routine to show <NOT COUNTED>.
