Subject[PATCH 4.14 089/101] perf/core: Fix ctx_event_type in ctx_resched()
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Song Liu <songliubraving@fb.com>

commit bd903afeb504db5655a45bb4cf86f38be5b1bf62 upstream.

In ctx_resched(), EVENT_FLEXIBLE should be sched_out when EVENT_PINNED is
added. However, ctx_resched() calculates ctx_event_type before checking
this condition. As a result, pinned events will NOT get higher priority
than flexible events.

The following shows this issue on an Intel CPU (where ref-cycles can
only use one hardware counter).

1. First start:
perf stat -C 0 -e ref-cycles -I 1000
2. Then, in the second console, run:
perf stat -C 0 -e ref-cycles:D -I 1000

The second perf uses pinned events, which is expected to have higher
priority. However, because it failed in ctx_resched(). It is never
run.

This patch fixes this by calculating ctx_event_type after re-evaluating
event_type.
