      perf tools: Improve error reporting · ffa91880
      Adrien BAK authored
      In the current version, when using perf record, if something goes
      wrong in tools/perf/builtin-record.c:375
        session = perf_session__new(file, false, NULL);
      
      The error message:
      "Not enough memory for reading per file header"
      
      is issued. This error message seems to be outdated and is not very
      helpful. This patch proposes to replace this error message by
      "Perf session creation failed"
      
      I believe this issue has been brought to lkml:
      https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/2/24/458
      
      
      although this patch only tackles a (small) part of the issue.
      
      Additionnaly, this patch improves error reporting in
      tools/perf/util/data.c open_file_write.
      
      Currently, if the call to open fails, the user is unaware of it.
      This patch logs the error, before returning the error code to
      the caller.

      perf tools: Adjust symbols in VDSO · 922d0e4d
      Vladimir Nikulichev authored
      
      
      pert-report doesn't resolve function names in VDSO:
      
      $ perf report --stdio -g flat,0.0,15,callee --sort pid

                     ACE_OS::gettimeofday()
      ...
      
      In this case symbol values should be adjusted the same way as for executables,
      relocatable objects and prelinked libraries.

      perf kvm: Fix 'Min time' counting in report command · acb61fc8
      Alexander Yarygin authored
      
      
      Every event in the perf-kvm has a 'stats' structure, which contains
      max/min/average/etc times of handling this event.
      The problem is that the 'perf-kvm stat report' command always shows
      that 'min time' is 0us for every event. Example:
      
       # perf kvm stat report
      
       Analyze events for all VCPUs:
      
          VM-EXIT    Samples  Samples%     Time%   Min Time   Max Time Avg time
        [..]
        0xB2 MSCH         12     0.07%     0.00%        0us        8us 7.31us ( +-   2.11% )
        0xB2 CHSC         12     0.07%     0.00%        0us       18us 9.39us ( +-   9.49% )
        0xB2 STPX          8     0.05%     0.00%        0us        2us 1.88us ( +-   7.18% )
        0xB2 STSI          7     0.04%     0.00%        0us       44us 16.49us ( +-  38.20% )
        [..]
      
      This happens because the 'stats' structure is not initialized and
      stats->min equals to 0. Lets initialize the structure for every
      event after its allocation using init_stats() function. This initializes
      stats->min to -1 and makes 'Min time' statistics counting work:
      
       # perf kvm stat report
      
       Analyze events for all VCPUs:
      
          VM-EXIT    Samples  Samples%     Time%   Min Time   Max Time Avg time
        [..]
        0xB2 MSCH         12     0.07%     0.00%        6us        8us 7.31us ( +-   2.11% )

      ext4: fix COLLAPSE_RANGE failure with 1KB block size · a8680e0d
      Namjae Jeon authored
      
      
      When formatting with 1KB or 2KB(not aligned with PAGE SIZE) block
      size, xfstests generic/075 and 091 are failing. The offset supplied to
      function truncate_pagecache_range is block size aligned. In this
      function start offset is re-aligned to PAGE_SIZE by rounding_up to the
      next page boundary.  Due to this rounding up, old data remains in the
      page cache when blocksize is less than page size and start offset is
      not aligned with page size.  In case of collapse range, we need to
      align start offset to page size boundary by doing a round down
      operation instead of round up.

      Thanks to Hugh for debugging this issue, leading to various panics.

      'produce_core' is simply : main() { *(int *)0 = 1;}
