Hi James,

Thanks for your reply.

The check against PERF_REG_ARM64_LR is indeed not required and I can
check if libunwind goes successfully.

I am going to follow up with a v2 of the patch applying these changes.

I think the bits you mentioned don't need to be added because this check
is already done in add_callchain_ip() called afterwards in machine.c :

if (symbol_conf.hide_unresolved && entry->ms.sym == NULL)
return 0;

For the second one, I don't think it needs to be added either because
append_inlines() appends ip on the cursor which is also already done by
add_callchain_ip().

For the last one, the conversion from a virtual address to a binary one
isn't required.


Also for the expansion to all platforms, it doesn't work on x86 so I'll
leave it just for arm for now.

Regards,

Alexandre
