As I understand it, file_pos is mostly used to show file offset
in dump_event(), like:

_0x17cf08_ [0x28]: event: 9

In current implementation file_pos is always 0 for _uncompressed_ events:

0 [0x28]: event: 9

Also file_pos is used to do lseek() for some user events:
PERF_RECORD_HEADER_TRACING_DATA, PERF_RECORD_AUXTRACE. etc.

As long as the compressed event container does not contain user events,
everything is fine. Currently only CPU events are compressed.

We can only fix zero offset for uncompressed events in dump_event(),
unfortunately we cannot show the original file offset because we
uncompress the entire compressed container and do not know compressed
size of each event in the container.

Thus we have 3 options:

1. Show for each uncompressed event decomp->file_pos: offset to
compressed container event:

We will see a series of CPU events with the same file offset.
This is done by this patch.

2. Show decomp->file_pos + offset in uncompressed buffer.

We will see a series of CPU events with overlapping file offsets.
Better is to show something like file_pos:uncompressed_pos,
but this would require changing all calls to dump_event().

3. Keep 0

What in your opinion is more preferable?

Also checking of

(size < sizeof(struct perf_event_header))

after perf_session__process_event() is incorrect.

Thanks,
Alexey
