Subject: [PATCH 0/5] perf-probe: Improve probing on versioned symbols


Here is the series for probing on versioned symbols
in libraries. This includes 5 patches to fix the
issues discussed on perf-users ML 

[1/5] Warn if the event name is invalid. This notices
   user that there is internal error which caused by
   unexpected input.
[2/5] Cut off the version suffix when making event name
   from symbol name. This fixes a issue when a wildcard
   hits versioned symbol.
[3/5] Add "__return" suffix to the event name 
   automatically for the return probe, so that user
   can easily identify which event is on function
[4/5] Find versioned symbol from map without wildcard.
   This allows user to specify a symbol without version
   suffix nor wildcard. Anyway, at this point we have
   no way to specify version suffix, because parser
   recognizes "@" is a separator of "function@...e"
   syntax. This is fixed in next patch.
[5/5] Allow user to use backslash-escaped characters
   on command line. This has 2 effects, user can specify
   version suffix directly, and we can use special
   characters in source file.


Masami Hiramatsu (5):
      perf-probe: Add warning message if there is unexpected event name
      perf-probe: Cut off the version suffix from event name
      perf-probe: Add __return suffix for return events
      perf-probe: Find versioned symbols from map
      perf-probe: Support escaped character in parser
