Subject[PATCH 4.14 481/496] perf report: Fix memory corruption in --branch-history mode --branch-history
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit e3ebaa465136ecfedf9c6f4671df02bf625f8125 ]

Jin Yao reported memory corrupton in perf report with
branch info used for stack trace:

> Following command lines will cause perf crash.

> perf record -j call -g -a <application>
> perf report --branch-history
>
> *** Error in `perf': double free or corruption (!prev): 0x00000000104aa040 ***

For the cumulative output, we allocate the he_cache array based on the
--max-stack option value and populate it with data from 'callchain_cursor'.

The --max-stack option value does not ensure now the limit for number of
callchain_cursor nodes, so the cumulative iter code will allocate smaller array
than it's actually needed and cause above corruption.

I think the --max-stack limit does not apply here anyway, because we add
callchain data as normal hist entries, while the --max-stack control the limit
of single entry callchain depth.

Using the callchain_cursor.nr as he_cache array count to fix this. Also
removing struct hist_entry_iter::max_stack, because there's no longer any use
for it.

We need more fixes to ensure that the branch stack code follows properly the
logic of --max-stack, which is not the case at the moment.
