Subject[PATCH 4.12 023/196] perf intel-pt: Ensure never to set last_ip when packet count is zero
Date
4.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com>

commit f952eaceb089b691eba7c4e13686e742a8f26bf5 upstream.

Intel PT uses IP compression based on the last IP. For decoding purposes,
'last IP' is not updated when a branch target has been suppressed, which is
indicated by IPBytes == 0. IPBytes is stored in the packet 'count', so
ensure never to set 'last_ip' when packet 'count' is zero.
