Subject[PATCH v3 2/2] Support interactive annotation of code without symbols
Date
For perf report on stripped binaries it is currently impossible to do
annotation. The annotation state is all tied to symbols, but there are
either no symbols, or symbols are not covering all the code.

We should support the annotation functionality even without symbols.

This patch fakes a symbol and the symbol name is the string of address.
After that, we just follow current annotation working flow.

For example,

1. perf report

Overhead Command Shared Object Symbol
20.67% div libc-2.27.so [.] __random_r
17.29% div libc-2.27.so [.] __random
10.59% div div [.] 0x0000000000000628
9.25% div div [.] 0x0000000000000612
6.11% div div [.] 0x0000000000000645

2. Select the line of "10.59% div div [.] 0x0000000000000628" and ENTER.

Annotate 0x0000000000000628
Zoom into div thread
Zoom into div DSO (use the 'k' hotkey to zoom directly into the kernel)
Browse map details
Run scripts for samples of symbol [0x0000000000000628]
Run scripts for all samples
Switch to another data file in PWD
Exit

3. Select the "Annotate 0x0000000000000628" and ENTER.

Percent│


│ Disassembly of section .text:

│ 0000000000000628 <.text+0x68>:
│ divsd %xmm4,%xmm0
│ divsd %xmm3,%xmm1
│ movsd (%rsp),%xmm2
│ addsd %xmm1,%xmm0
│ addsd %xmm2,%xmm0
│ movsd %xmm0,(%rsp)

Now we can see the dump of object starting from 0x628.

v3:
---
Keep just the ANNOTATION_DUMMY_LEN, and remove the
opts->annotate_dummy_len since it's the "maybe in future
we will provide" feature.

v2:
---
Fix a crash issue when annotating an address in "unknown" object.

The steps to reproduce this issue:

perf record -e cycles:u ls
perf report

75.29% ls ld-2.27.so [.] do_lookup_x
23.64% ls ld-2.27.so [.] __GI___tunables_init
1.04% ls [unknown] [k] 0xffffffff85c01210
0.03% ls ld-2.27.so [.] _start

When annotating 0xffffffff85c01210, the crash happens.

v2 adds checking for ms->map in add_annotate_opt(). If the object is
"unknown", ms->map is NULL.
