Hi Kan Liang,

Sure, we will check this.

Ok, We will look into this and come back with an RFC patch.

My point about weak function was actually for the arch specific header string. But I guess we should not force it to data->ins_lat
as you mentioned. I checked the below patch defining an ‘arch_perf_parse_sample_weight' for powerpc and it works.

But one observation is that, for cases with kernel having support for PERF_SAMPLE_WEIGHT_STRUCT but missing arch specific support for ‘arch_perf_parse_sample_weight', it will report ‘Local Weight’ wrongly since weak function takes it as 64 bit. Not sure if that is a valid case to consider though.

Thanks
