Hi Ingo,

Please consider pulling,

perf data: Add doc when no conversion support compiled (2017-07-28 16:30:45 -0300)

perf/core improvements and fixes for 4.14:

New features:

conversion, allowing CTF trace visualization tools to show callchains
and to resolve symbols (Geneviève Bastien)


- Use group read for event groups in 'perf stat', reducing overhead when
groups are defined in the event specification, i.e. when using {} to
enclose a list of events, asking them to be read at the same time,
e.g.: "perf stat -e '{cycles,instructions}'" (Jiri Olsa)


- Do not overwrite perf_sample->weight in 'perf annotate' when
processing samples, use whatever came from the kernel when
perf_event_attr.sample_type has PERF_SAMPLE_WEIGHT set or just handle
its default value, 0, when that is not set and "weight" is one of the
sort orders chosen (Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo)

- 'perf annotate --show-total-period' fixes:
- TUI should show period, not nr_samples
- Set appropriate column width for period/percent
- Fix the column header to show "Period" when when that is what
is being asked for
(Taeung Song, Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo)

- Use default sort if evlist is empty, fixing pipe mode (David Carrillo-Cisneros)

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

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.
