Subject: [PATCH for v4.9 LTS 39/87] tools lib traceevent: Fix prev/next_prio
 for deadline tasks

From: Daniel Bristot de Oliveira <bristot@...hat.com>

[ Upstream commit 074859184d770824f4437dca716bdeb625ae8b1c ]

Currently, the sched:sched_switch tracepoint reports deadline tasks with
priority -1. But when reading the trace via perf script I've got the
following output:

  # ./d & # (d is a deadline task, see [1])
  # perf record -e sched:sched_switch -a sleep 1
  # perf script
      ...
         swapper     0 [000]  2146.962441: sched:sched_switch: swapper/0:0 [120] R ==> d:2593 [4294967295]
               d  2593 [000]  2146.972472: sched:sched_switch: d:2593 [4294967295] R ==> g:2590 [4294967295]

The task d reports the wrong priority [4294967295]. This happens because
the "int prio" is stored in an unsigned long long val. Although it is
set as a %lld, as int is shorter than unsigned long long,
trace_seq_printf prints it as a positive number.

The fix is just to cast the val as an int, and print it as a %d,
as in the sched:sched_switch tracepoint's "format".

The output with the fix is:

  # ./d &
  # perf record -e sched:sched_switch -a sleep 1
  # perf script
      ...
         swapper     0 [000]  4306.374037: sched:sched_switch: swapper/0:0 [120] R ==> d:10941 [-1]
               d 10941 [000]  4306.383823: sched:sched_switch: d:10941 [-1] R ==> swapper/0:0 [120]

Committer notes:

Got the program from the provided URL, http://bristot.me/lkml/d.c,
trimmed it and included in the cset log above, so that we have
everything needed to test it in one place.
