This issue is a common issue crossing all archs. So it's better to
change the code in the places where calls perf_reg_name(), e.g. in
util/session.c:

--- a/tools/perf/util/session.c
+++ b/tools/perf/util/session.c
@@ -1135,12 +1135,14 @@ static void branch_stack__printf(struct perf_sample *sample, bool callstack)
static void regs_dump__printf(u64 mask, u64 *regs)
{
unsigned rid, i = 0;
+ char *reg_name;

for_each_set_bit(rid, (unsigned long *) &mask, sizeof(mask) * 8) {
u64 val = regs[i++];

+ reg_name = perf_reg_name(rid);
printf(".... %-5s 0x%016" PRIx64 "\n",
- perf_reg_name(rid), val);
+ reg_name ?: "Unknown", val);
}
}

And another potential issue is the format specifier "%-5s", it prints
out maximum to 5 chars, but actually string "Unknown" has 7 chars.
Actually the format specifier breaks other archs register names, e.g.
[1][2], seems to me, it's better to change as "%-8s", you might need
to use a dedicated patch for format specifier changes.
Thanks,
Leo
