Subject[GIT PULL 00/86] perf/core improvements and fixes
Date
Hi Ingo,

Unusually big one, please conside pulling, details on the signed tag,

- Arnaldo

Test results at the end of this message, as usual.

The following changes since commit 4b1303d0b01440f224cf81493b7e8e43d9b4965e:

perf symbols: Accept zero as the kernel base address (2017-07-12 11:47:05 -0300)

are available in the git repository at:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/acme/linux.git tags/perf-core-for-mingo-4.13-20170718

perf report: Show branch type in callchain entry (2017-07-18 23:14:42 -0300)

----------------------------------------------------------------
perf/core improvements and fixes:

User visible:

. Initial support for namespaces, using setns to access files in
namespaces, grabbing their build-ids, etc. We still need to work
more to deal with namespaces that vanish before we can get the
needed data to do analysis, but this should be as good as what is
in bcc now (Krister Johansen)

. Add header record types to pipe-mode, now this command:

$ perf record -o - -e cycles sleep 1 | perf report --stdio --header

Will show the same as in non-pipe mode, i.e. involving a perf.data
file (David Carrillo-Cisneros)

. Implement a visual marker for fused x86 instructions in the annotate
TUI browser, available now in 'perf report', more work needed to have
it available as well in 'perf top' (Jin Yao)

Further explanation from one of Jin's patches:

│ ┌──cmpl $0x0,argp_program_version_hook
81.93 │ ├──je 20
│ │ lock cmpxchg %esi,0x38a9a4(%rip)
│ │↓ jne 29
│ │↓ jmp 43
11.47 │20:└─→cmpxch %esi,0x38a999(%rip)

That means the cmpl+je is a fused instruction pair and they should be
considered together.

. Record the branch type and then show statistics and info about
in callchain entries (Jin Yao)

Example from one of Jin's patches:

# perf record -g -j any,save_type
# perf report --branch-history --stdio --no-children

38.50% div.c:45 [.] main div
|
---main div.c:42 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:2)
compute_flag div.c:28 (cycles:2)
compute_flag div.c:27 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:1)
rand rand.c:28 (cycles:1)
rand rand.c:28 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:1)
__random random.c:298 (cycles:1)
__random random.c:297 (COND_BWD CROSS_2M cycles:1)
__random random.c:295 (cycles:1)
__random random.c:295 (COND_BWD CROSS_2M cycles:1)
__random random.c:295 (cycles:1)
__random random.c:295 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:9)

. Beautify the fcntl syscall, which is an interesting one in the sense
that infrastructure had to be put in place to change the formatters of
some arguments according to the value in a previous one, i.e. cmd
dictates how arg and the syscall return will be formatted.
(Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo

Infrastructure:

. 'perf test attr' fixes (Jiri Olsa)

Vendor events:

- Add POWER9 PMU events Sukadev (Bhattiprolu)

- Support additional POWER8+ PVR in PMU mapfile (Shriya)

Test results at the end of this message, as usual.

Test results:

The first ones are container (docker) based builds of tools/perf with and
without libelf support, objtool where it is supported and samples/bpf/, ditto.
Where clang is available, it is also used to build perf with/without libelf.

Several are cross builds, the ones with -x-ARCH, and the android one, and those
may not have all the features built, due to lack of multi-arch devel packages,
available and being used so far on just a few, like
debian:experimental-x-{arm64,mipsel}.

The 'perf test' one will perform a variety of tests exercising
tools/perf/util/, tools/lib/{bpf,traceevent,etc}, as well as run perf commands
with a variety of command line event specifications to then intercept the
sys_perf_event syscall to check that the perf_event_attr fields are set up as
expected, among a variety of other unit tests.

Then there is the 'make -C tools/perf build-test' ones, that build tools/perf/
with a variety of feature sets, exercising the build with an incomplete set of
features as well as with a complete one. It is planned to have it run on each
of the containers mentioned above, using some container orchestration
infrastructure. Get in contact if interested in helping having this in place.

The fedora:rawhide case is being investigated, doesn't seem to have been
introduced by this batch:
