Subject[PATCH 67/73] perf intel-pt: Fix instructions sampling rate
Date
From: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com>

The timestamp used to determine if an instruction sample is made, is an
estimate based on the number of instructions since the last known
timestamp. A consequence is that it might go backwards, which results in
extra samples. Change it so that a sample is only made when the
timestamp goes forwards.

Note this does not affect a sampling period of 0 or sampling periods
specified as a count of instructions.

Example:

Before:

$ perf script --itrace=i10us
ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222583: 3270 instructions:u: 7fac71e2e494 __GI___tunables_init+0xf4 (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222667: 30902 instructions:u: 7fac71e2da0f _dl_cache_libcmp+0x2f (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222667: 10 instructions:u: 7fac71e2d9ff _dl_cache_libcmp+0x1f (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222667: 8 instructions:u: 7fac71e2d9ea _dl_cache_libcmp+0xa (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222667: 14 instructions:u: 7fac71e2d9ea _dl_cache_libcmp+0xa (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222667: 6 instructions:u: 7fac71e2d9ff _dl_cache_libcmp+0x1f (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)

ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222667: 4 instructions:u: 7fac71e2dab2 _dl_cache_libcmp+0xd2 (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222728: 16423 instructions:u: 7fac71e2477a _dl_map_object_deps+0x1ba (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)

...

After:
$ perf script --itrace=i10us
ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222583: 3270 instructions:u: 7fac71e2e494 __GI___tunables_init+0xf4 (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)

ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222728: 16479 instructions:u: 7fac71e2477a _dl_map_object_deps+0x1ba (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
