Subject: Re: [PATCH 28/52] perf script: Allow callchains if any event samples
 them

I wonder if some other tool gets this wrong as well, report maybe?

Perhaps we need to have this check in some perf_evlist method?

Wonder how report/top, i.e. the hists browser will react with some
events having callchains while some don't, specially with this new
children stuff, Namhyung, can you please check that?

Adrian, can you, in a case like that, provide a command line that
creates such combo? I.e. how to create a perf.data file with multiple
events with some having callchains while some don't.

As a rule, it is better to ease reproducing behaviour you mention when
fixing stuff, so that quickly others can try and go on trying to fix it.

Thanks,

- Arnaldo
