Subject: [GIT PULL 00/15] perf/core inlining improvements

Hi Ingo,

	Please consider pulling, this is Milian's v7 plus some fixes
acked by Namhyung after some discussion among the three of us, I
probably need to pick some more patches that are related to this area,
but lets make some progress and merge this kit,

- Arnaldo

  perf util: Enable handling of inlined frames by default (2017-10-25 10:50:47 -0300)

perf/core inline improvements:

>From Milian's cover letter: (Milian Wolff)

This series of patches completely reworks the way inline frames are
handled.  Instead of querying for the inline nodes on-demand in the
individual tools, we now create proper callchain nodes for inlined
frames. The advantages this approach brings are numerous:

- Less duplicated code in the individual browser

- Aggregated cost for inlined frames for the --children top-down list

- Various bug fixes that arose from querying for a srcline/symbol based on
  the IP of a sample, which will always point to the last inlined frame
  instead of the corresponding non-inlined frame

- Overall much better support for visualizing cost for heavily-inlined C++
  code, which simply was confusing and unreliable before

- srcline honors the global setting as to whether full paths or basenames
  should be shown

- Caches for inlined frames and srcline information, which allow us to
  enable inline frame handling by default

Test results:

The first ones are container (docker) based builds of tools/perf with and
without libelf support.  Where clang is available, it is also used to build
perf with/without libelf.

The objtool and samples/bpf/ builds are disabled now that I'm switching from
using the sources in a local volume to fetching them from a http server to
build it inside the container, to make it easier to build in a container cluster.
Those will come back later.

Several are cross builds, the ones with -x-ARCH and the android one, and those
may not have all the features built, due to lack of multi-arch devel packages,
available and being used so far on just a few, like

The 'perf test' one will perform a variety of tests exercising
tools/perf/util/, tools/lib/{bpf,traceevent,etc}, as well as run perf commands
with a variety of command line event specifications to then intercept the
sys_perf_event syscall to check that the perf_event_attr fields are set up as
expected, among a variety of other unit tests.

Then there is the 'make -C tools/perf build-test' ones, that build tools/perf/
with a variety of feature sets, exercising the build with an incomplete set of
features as well as with a complete one. It is planned to have it run on each
of the containers mentioned above, using some container orchestration
infrastructure. Get in contact if interested in helping having this in place.
