Subject[PATCH v3] perf stat: Disable NMI watchdog message on hybrid
Date
If we run a single workload that only runs on big core, there is always a
ugly message about disabling the NMI watchdog because the atom is not
counted.

Before:

# ./perf stat true

Performance counter stats for 'true':

0.43 msec task-clock # 0.396 CPUs utilized
0 context-switches # 0.000 /sec
0 cpu-migrations # 0.000 /sec
45 page-faults # 103.918 K/sec
639,634 cpu_core/cycles/ # 1.477 G/sec
<not counted> cpu_atom/cycles/ (0.00%)
643,498 cpu_core/instructions/ # 1.486 G/sec
<not counted> cpu_atom/instructions/ (0.00%)
123,715 cpu_core/branches/ # 285.694 M/sec
<not counted> cpu_atom/branches/ (0.00%)
4,094 cpu_core/branch-misses/ # 9.454 M/sec
<not counted> cpu_atom/branch-misses/ (0.00%)

0.001092407 seconds time elapsed

0.001144000 seconds user
0.000000000 seconds sys

Some events weren't counted. Try disabling the NMI watchdog:
echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog
perf stat ...
echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog

# ./perf stat -e '{cpu_atom/cycles/,msr/tsc/}' true

Performance counter stats for 'true':

<not counted> cpu_atom/cycles/ (0.00%)
<not counted> msr/tsc/ (0.00%)

0.001904106 seconds time elapsed

0.001947000 seconds user
0.000000000 seconds sys

Some events weren't counted. Try disabling the NMI watchdog:
echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog
perf stat ...
echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog
The events in group usually have to be from the same PMU. Try reorganizing the group.

Now we disable the NMI watchdog message on hybrid, otherwise there
are too many false positives.

After:

# ./perf stat true

Performance counter stats for 'true':

0.79 msec task-clock # 0.419 CPUs utilized
0 context-switches # 0.000 /sec
0 cpu-migrations # 0.000 /sec

0.000000000 seconds sys

# ./perf stat -e '{cpu_atom/cycles/,msr/tsc/}' true

Performance counter stats for 'true':

v3:
- Use evlist__has_hybrid() to check there is at least one hybrid
event in evlist.

v2:
- If the group was mixed with hybrid event and non-hybrid event,
the NMI watchdog message was still reported. V2 adds checking
for hybrid event mixed group.
