v2: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/1ec29ed6-0047-d22f-630b-a7f5ccee96b4@linux.intel.com/

Changes in v2:
- explicitly added credit tags to patches 6/15 and 15/15,
additionally to cites [1], [2]
- updated description of 3/15 to explicitly mention the reason
to open data directories in read access mode (e.g. for perf report)
- implemented fix for compilation error of 2/15
- explicitly elaborated on found issues to be resolved for
threaded AUX trace capture

v1: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/810f3a69-0004-9dff-a911-b7ff97220ae0@linux.intel.com/

Patch set provides parallel threaded trace streaming mode for basic
perf record operation. Provided mode mitigates profiling data losses
and resolves scalability issues of serial and asynchronous (--aio)
trace streaming modes on multicore server systems. The design and
implementation are based on the prototype [1], [2].

Parallel threaded mode executes trace streaming threads that read kernel
data buffers and write captured data into several data files located at
data directory. Layout of trace streaming threads and their mapping to data
buffers to read can be configured using a value of --thread command line
option. Specification value provides masks separated by colon so the masks
define cpus to be monitored by one thread and thread affinity mask is
separated by slash. <cpus mask 1>/<affinity mask 1>:<cpu mask 2>/<affinity mask 2>
specifies parallel threads layout that consists of two threads with
corresponding assigned cpus to be monitored. Specification value can be
a string e.g. "cpu", "core" or "socket" meaning creation of data streaming
thread for monitoring every cpu, whole core or socket. The option provided
with no or empty value defaults to "cpu" layout creating data streaming
thread for every cpu being monitored. Specification masks are filtered
by the mask provided via -C option.

Parallel streaming mode is compatible with Zstd compression/decompression
(--compression-level) and external control commands (--control). The mode
is not enabled for pipe mode. The mode is not enabled for AUX area tracing,
related and derived modes like --snapshot or --aux-sample. --switch-output-*
and --timestamp-filename options are not enabled for parallel streaming.
Initial intent to enable AUX area tracing faced the need to define some
optimal way to store index data in data directory. --switch-output-* and
--timestamp-filename use cases are not clear for data directories.
Asynchronous(--aio) trace streaming and affinity (--affinity) modes are
mutually exclusive to parallel streaming mode.

Basic analysis of data directories is provided in perf report mode.
Raw dump and aggregated reports are available for data directories,
still with no memory consumption optimizations.
