Just as an FYI, your email was HTML, which means it won't hit LKML.

Okay I think I see what is going on here. Your patch does not actually
fix the problem from what I can tell though:

$ mkdir -p /tmp/build/perf

$ make -C tools/perf -skj"$(nproc)" O=/tmp/build/perf

$ cd /tmp/build/perf

$ ~/cbl/src/linux/scripts/clang-tools/gen_compile_commands.py --log_level INFO -d .
...
INFO: Could not add line from /tmp/build/perf/arch/x86/tests/.bp-modify.o.cmd: File /tmp/build/perf/arch/x86/tests/bp-modify.c not found
INFO: Could not add line from /tmp/build/perf/arch/x86/tests/.insn-x86.o.cmd: File /tmp/build/perf/arch/x86/tests/insn-x86.c not found
INFO: Could not add line from /tmp/build/perf/arch/x86/tests/.arch-tests.o.cmd: File /tmp/build/perf/arch/x86/tests/arch-tests.c not found

...

The script has to know where the source location is in your particular
use case because the .cmd files do not record it (maybe some future
improvement?)

This patch appears to generate what I think the compile_commands.json
should look like for the most part, I am not sure if this is proper or
works correctly though. CC'ing Tom Roeder who originally wrote this.
Tom, the initial patch and description of the issue is here:
