Subject[PATCH 2/6] perf record: Fix duplicated sideband events with Intel PT system wide tracing
Date
Commit 0a892c1c9472 ("perf record: Add dummy event during system wide
synthesis") reveals an issue with Intel PT system wide tracing.
Specifically that Intel PT already adds a dummy tracking event, and it is
not the first event. Adding another dummy tracking event causes duplicated
sideband events. Fix by checking for an existing dummy tracking event
first.

Example showing duplicated switch events:

Before:

# perf record -a -e intel_pt//u uname
Linux
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.895 MB perf.data ]
# perf script --no-itrace --show-switch-events | head
swapper 0 [007] 6390.516222: PERF_RECORD_SWITCH_CPU_WIDE OUT preempt next pid/tid: 11/11
swapper 0 [007] 6390.516222: PERF_RECORD_SWITCH_CPU_WIDE OUT preempt next pid/tid: 11/11

swapper 0 [002] 6390.516415: PERF_RECORD_SWITCH_CPU_WIDE OUT preempt next pid/tid: 5556/5559
swapper 0 [002] 6390.516416: PERF_RECORD_SWITCH_CPU_WIDE OUT preempt next pid/tid: 5556/5559

After:

# perf record -a -e intel_pt//u uname
Linux
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.868 MB perf.data ]
# perf script --no-itrace --show-switch-events | head
