Subject[PATCH v2 0/6] perf cs-etm: Fix tracing packet handling and minor refactoring
Due the current code is missing to handle cs-etm start tracing packet
and CS_ETM_TRACE_ON packet, we fail to generate branch sample for them.

This patch series is to fix cs-etm tracing packet handling:

Patch 0001 is to add invalid address macro for readable coding;

Patch 0002 is one minor fixing to return error code for instruction
sample failure;

Patches 0003~0006 are fixing patches for start tracing packet
and CS_ETM_TRACE_ON packet.

This patch series is applied to Linus tree on 4.18-rc4 with latest
commit: 1e09177acae3 ("Merge tag 'mips_fixes_4.18_3' of

This patch series has been verified on Hikey620 platform with below two
perf script --itrace=i10000il128 -F cpu,event,ip,addr,sym -k ./vmlinux
perf script -F cpu,event,ip,addr,sym -k ./vmlinux


Changes from v1:
* Rebased on Linus mainline kernel 4.18-rc4;
* Added Mathieu 'reviewed' tags in patches.

perf cs-etm: Bail out immediately for instruction sample failure
perf cs-etm: Fix start tracing packet handling
perf cs-etm: Support dummy address value for CS_ETM_TRACE_ON packet
