Subject[PATCH 3.12 25/86] perf/x86: Avoid exposing wrong/stale data in intel_pmu_lbr_read_32()
Date
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

===============

commit f2200ac311302fcdca6556fd0c5127eab6c65a3e upstream.

When the perf_branch_entry::{in_tx,abort,cycles} fields were added,
intel_pmu_lbr_read_32() wasn't updated to initialize them.

[js] there is no cycles in 3.12 yet
