Subject[PATCH 33/37] perf script: Add --insn-trace for instruction decoding
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

Add a --insn-trace short hand option for decoding and disassembling
instruction streams for intel_pt. This automatically pipes the output
into the xed disassembler to generate disassembled instructions. This
just makes this use model much nicer to use.

Before

Now:

% perf record -e intel_pt// ...
% perf script --insn-trace --xed
... same output ...

XED needs to be installed with:

$ git clone https://github.com/intelxed/mbuild.git mbuild
$ git clone https://github.com/intelxed/xed
$ cd xed
$ ./mfile.py
$ ./mfile.py examples
$ sudo ./mfile.py --prefix=/usr/local install
$ sudo cp obj/examples/xed /usr/local/bin
$ xed | head -3
