Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 32/73] perf test 6: Fix missing kvm module load for s390

From: Thomas Richter <tmricht@...ux.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit 53fe307dfd309e425b171f6272d64296a54f4dff ]

Command

   # perf test -Fv 6

fails with error

   running test 100 'kvm-s390:kvm_s390_create_vm' failed to parse
    event 'kvm-s390:kvm_s390_create_vm', err -1, str 'unknown tracepoint'
    event syntax error: 'kvm-s390:kvm_s390_create_vm'
                         \___ unknown tracepoint

when the kvm module is not loaded or not built in.

Fix this by adding a valid function which tests if the module
is loaded. Loaded modules (or builtin KVM support) have a
directory named
  /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/kvm-s390
for this tracepoint.

Check for existence of this directory.
