Subject[GIT PULL 00/44] perf/core improvements and fixes
Date
Hi Ingo,

Mostly a 'perf annotate' refactoring to allow reusing the TUI
formatting routines in a --stdio2 mode for 'perf annotate' that at some
point should replace --stdio, leaving that old code deprecated for a
while, then ditching it.

That will take a while yet because there is some stuff in the
--stdio code that needs to be done in the annotation UI agnostic core to
then get used in --tui and --stdio2.

There is also some improvements for issues Linus reported in the
TUI annotation code for ASM functions.

Please consider pulling,

- Arnaldo

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

The following changes since commit ecd380b8dead1bad67e3af87e2ddfe826c3da79d:

Merge tag 'perf-core-for-mingo-4.17-20180319' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/acme/linux into perf/core (2018-03-19 20:37:48 +0100)

are available in the Git repository at:

perf annotate: Use absolute addresses to calculate jump target offsets (2018-03-23 16:46:53 -0300)

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

- Move non-TUI specific annotation routines out of the TUI browser so
that it can be used in other UIs, and to demonstrate that introduce
a 'perf annotate --stdio2' option that will apply those formatting
routines to provide a non-interactive annotation mode (Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo)

- Add 'P' hotkey to the annotation TUI, so dump the current annotated
symbol to a file, easing report thru e-mail, by getting rid of the
spaces + right hand side scrollbar chars (Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo)

- Support --ignore-vmlinux to 'perf report' and 'perf annotate', that
was already present in 'perf top', to use /proc/{kcore,kallsyms},
allowing to see what is in fact running (patched stuff, alternatives,
ftrace, etc), not the initial state of the kernel (vmlinux) (Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo)

- Support 'jump' instructions to a different function, treating them
as 'call' instructions (Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo)

- Fix some jump artifacts when using vmlinux + ASM functions, where
the ELF symtab for instance, for entry_SYSCALL_64 includes that and
what comes after the 'syscall_return_via_sysret' label, but the
objdump -dS prints the jump targets + offsets using the
syscall_return_via_sysret address, which was confusing 'perf annotate'.
See the cset comments for further info (Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo)

- Report error from dwfl_attach_state() in the unwind code (Martin Vuille)

- Reference Py_None before returning it in the python extension (Petr Machata)

Test results:

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

The objtool and samples/bpf/ builds are disabled now that I'm switching from
using the sources in a local volume to fetching them from a http server to
build it inside the container, to make it easier to build in a container cluster.
Those will come back later.

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.
