Reproduced locally. Investigating right now.

tools/perf/perf record -z tools/perf/perf bench sched messaging -l 10000
# Running 'sched/messaging' benchmark:
# 20 sender and receiver processes per group
# 10 groups == 400 processes run

Total time: 8.799 [sec]
[ perf record: Woken up 35 times to write data ]
0x2e48 [0]: failed to process type: 81
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 3.142 MB perf.data, compressed (original 10.241 MB, ratio is 3.272) ]

However it is not observed in my tests on 8 cores Skylake.

tools/perf/perf record -z ../../matrix/linux/matrix.gcc
Addr of buf1 = 0x7f2eca1ab010
Offs of buf1 = 0x7f2eca1ab180
Addr of buf2 = 0x7f2ec81aa010
Offs of buf2 = 0x7f2ec81aa1c0
Addr of buf3 = 0x7f2ec61a9010
Offs of buf3 = 0x7f2ec61a9100
Addr of buf4 = 0x7f2ec41a8010
Offs of buf4 = 0x7f2ec41a8140
Threads #: 8 Pthreads
Matrix size: 2048
Using multiply kernel: multiply1
Execution time = 30.075 seconds
[ perf record: Woken up 127 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 6.820 MB perf.data (953438 samples), compressed (original 36.372 MB, ratio is 5.344) ]

Thanks,
Alexey
