Subject[PATCH 13/28] perf tools: Add helpers to use capabilities if present
Date
From: Igor Lubashev <ilubashe@akamai.com>

Add utilities to help checking capabilities of the running procss. Make
perf link with libcap, if it is available. If no libcap-dev[el],
fallback to the geteuid() == 0 test used before.

Committer notes:

$ perf test python
18: 'import perf' in python : FAILED!
$ perf test -v python
Couldn't bump rlimit(MEMLOCK), failures may take place when creating BPF maps, etc
18: 'import perf' in python :
--- start ---
test child forked, pid 23288
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: /tmp/build/perf/python/perf.so: undefined symbol: cap_get_flag
test child finished with -1
---- end ----
'import perf' in python: FAILED!
$

This happens because differently from the perf binary generated with
this patch applied:

$ ldd /tmp/build/perf/perf | grep libcap
libcap.so.2 => /lib64/libcap.so.2 (0x00007f724a4ef000)
$

The python binding isn't linking with libcap:

$ ldd /tmp/build/perf/python/perf.so | grep libcap
$

So add 'cap' to the 'extra_libraries' variable in
tools/perf/util/setup.py, and rebuild:

$ perf test python
18: 'import perf' in python : Ok
$

If we explicitely disable libcap it also continues to work:

$ make NO_LIBCAP=1 -C tools/perf O=/tmp/build/perf install-bin
$ ldd /tmp/build/perf/perf | grep libcap
$ ldd /tmp/build/perf/python/perf.so | grep libcap
$ perf test python
18: 'import perf' in python : Ok
$
