+Peter,

I could reproduce this (without my band-aid patch 100%) even on the
latest
coresight-next tip which is on 5.9-rc5 with my debian installed on
SDM845 based board.

Hi Peter, sorry to bother you. We observe that the NULL pointer is
propagated from events core code(in the call trace below), is it even
valid for the owner(task) to be NULL?

Reproduction is as simple as below:

perf record -e cs_etm/@tmc_etf0/ -N -p 1
