So, I continue trying to test this with the patches applied up to the
patch in the subject of this message, i.e. up to:

09/15 perf, bpf: save btf information as headers to perf.data

While running on a kernel based on tip/perf/core, so it should have what
is needed:

[root@quaco ~]# egrep 't perf_event_(bpf|ksymbol)_output' /proc/kallsyms
ffffffff94211a40 t perf_event_bpf_output
ffffffff94216550 t perf_event_ksymbol_output
[root@quaco ~]#

But when I debug breakpointing perf_event__synthesize_one_bpf_prog(),
bpf_prog_info->btf_info is always zero, i.e. here:

/* check BTF func info support */
if (info->btf_id && info->nr_func_info && info->func_info_rec_size) {
/* btf func info number should be same as sub_prog_cnt */
if (sub_prog_cnt != info->nr_func_info) {
pr_debug("%s: mismatch in BPF sub program count and BTF function info count, aborting\n", __func__);
err = -1;
goto out;
}
if (btf__get_from_id(info->btf_id, &btf)) {
pr_debug("%s: failed to get BTF of id %u, aborting\n", __func__, info->btf_id);
err = -1;
btf = NULL;
goto out;
}
has_btf = true;
perf_env__fetch_btf(env, info->btf_id, btf);
}

So we never get into this if body and this do not call
perf__env_fetch_btf() and thus don't write BTF info to the perf.data
header.

And yes, there are BPF programs with BTF information associated:

[root@quaco perf]# bpftool map dump pids_filtered
[{
"key": 2592,
"value": true
},{
"key": 20511,
"value": true
}
]
[root@quaco perf]#

I.e. bpftool can find the BTF info and thus is able to show the
'pids_filtered' map keys and values pretty printed, not just as hex raw
data.

I'm trying to find out why 'bpftool map dump' finds the BTF info while
perf_event__synthesize_one_bpf_prog() doesn't.
