Subject[PATCH 4.14 216/496] perf record: Fix crash in pipe mode
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org>

[ Upstream commit ad46e48c65fa1f204fa29eaff1b91174d314a94b ]

Currently we can crash perf record when running in pipe mode, like:

$ perf record ls | perf report
# To display the perf.data header info, please use --header/--header-only options.
#
perf: Segmentation fault
Error:
The - file has no samples!

The callstack of the crash is:

0x0000000000515242 in perf_event__synthesize_event_update_name
3513 ev = event_update_event__new(len + 1, PERF_EVENT_UPDATE__NAME, evsel->id[0]);
(gdb) bt
#0 0x0000000000515242 in perf_event__synthesize_event_update_name
#1 0x00000000005158a4 in perf_event__synthesize_extra_attr
#2 0x0000000000443347 in record__synthesize
#3 0x00000000004438e3 in __cmd_record
#4 0x000000000044514e in cmd_record
#5 0x00000000004cbc95 in run_builtin
#6 0x00000000004cbf02 in handle_internal_command
#7 0x00000000004cc054 in run_argv
#8 0x00000000004cc422 in main

The reason of the crash is that the evsel does not have ids array
allocated and the pipe's synthesize code tries to access it.

We don't force evsel ids allocation when we have single event, because
it's not needed. However we need it when we are in pipe mode even for
single event as a key for evsel update event.

Fixing this by forcing evsel ids allocation event for single event, when
we are in pipe mode.
