Commit 66ec11919a0f96e936bb731fdbc2851316077d26 upstream.

Currently, perf record is broken on arm/arm64 systems when the PMU is
specified explicitly as part of the event, e.g.

$ ./perf record -e armv8_cortex_a53/cpu_cycles/u true

In such cases, perf record fails to open events unless
perf_event_paranoid is set to -1, even if the PMU in question supports
mode exclusion. Further, even when perf_event_paranoid is toggled, no
samples are recorded.

This is an unintended side effect of commit:

  e3ba76deef23064f ("perf tools: Force uncore events to system wide monitoring)

... which assumes that if a PMU has an associated cpu_map, it is an
uncore PMU, and forces events for such PMUs to be system-wide.

This is not true for arm/arm64 systems, which can have heterogeneous
CPUs. To account for this, multiple CPU PMUs are exposed, each with a
"cpus" field under sysfs, which the perf tool parses into a cpu_map. ARM
PMUs do not have a "cpumask" file, and only have a "cpus" file. For the
gory details as to why, see commit:

 7e3fcffe95544010 ("perf pmu: Support alternative sysfs cpumask")

Given all of this, we can instead identify uncore PMUs by explicitly
checking for a "cpumask" file, and restore arm/arm64 PMU support back to
a working state. This patch does so, adding a new perf_pmu::is_uncore
field, and splitting the existing cpumask parsing so that it can be
reused.

Thanks for the patch, but 4.12 is end-of-life and I'm not doing any more
releases for it.

You should always be able to check this on the front page of kernel.org.

thanks,

Noted; thanks for the pointer, and sorry for the noise.

Thanks,
Mark.
