Subject[PATCH 2/2] perf intel-pt: Refine kernel decoding only warning message
Date
Stop the message displaying when user space is not being traced.

Example:

Prerequisites:

sudo setcap "cap_sys_rawio,cap_sys_admin,cap_sys_ptrace,cap_syslog,cap_ipc_lock=ep" ~/bin/perf
sudo chmod +r /proc/kcore

Before:

$ perf record --no-switch-events --kcore -a -e intel_pt//k -- sleep 0.001
Warning:
Intel Processor Trace decoding will not be possible except for kernel tracing!
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.838 MB perf.data ]

After:

$ perf record --no-switch-events --kcore -a -e intel_pt//k -- sleep 0.001
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 1.068 MB perf.data ]

$ sudo chmod go-r /proc/kcore
$ sudo setcap -r ~/bin/perf
