Subject[PATCH 1/3] perf script brstackinsn: Fix recovery from LBR/binary mismatch
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

When the LBR data and the instructions in a binary do not match the
loop printing instructions could get confused and print a long
stream of bogus <bad> instructions.

The problem was that if the instruction decoder cannot decode an
instruction it ilen wasn't initialized, so the loop going through
the basic block would continue with the previous value.

Harden the code to avoid such problems:
- Make sure ilen is always freshly initialized and is 0 for bad
instructions.
- Do not overrun the code buffer while printing instructions
- Print a warning message if the final jump is not on an
instruction boundary.
