Subject[PATCH v4 2/2] perf parse: Copy string to perf_evsel_config_term
Date
perf with CoreSight fails to record trace data with command:

perf record -e cs_etm/@tmc_etr0/u --per-thread ls
failed to set sink "" on event cs_etm/@tmc_etr0/u with 21 (Is a
directory)/perf/

This failure is root caused with the commit 1dc925568f01 ("perf
parse: Add a deep delete for parse event terms").

The log shows, cs_etm fails to parse the sink attribution; cs_etm event
relies on the event configuration to pass sink name, but the event
specific configuration data cannot be passed properly with flow:

get_config_terms()
ADD_CONFIG_TERM(DRV_CFG, term->val.str);
__t->val.str = term->val.str;
`> __t->val.str is assigned to term->val.str;

parse_events_terms__purge()
parse_events_term__delete()
zfree(&term->val.str);
`> term->val.str is freed and assigned to NULL pointer;

cs_etm_set_sink_attr()
sink = __t->val.str;
`> sink string has been freed.

To fix this issue, in the function get_config_terms(), this patch
changes to use strdup() for allocation a new duplicate string rather
than directly assignment string pointer.

This patch addes a new field 'free_str' in the data structure
perf_evsel_config_term; 'free_str' is set to true when the union is used
as a string pointer; thus it can tell perf_evsel__free_config_terms() to
free the string.
