Subject: [PATCH 0/6] perf tools: Enable AUX area tracing snapshots using a FIFO


Here are some patches to enable AUX area tracing snapshots using a FIFO.
Presently SIGUSR2 can be used but the advantage of the FIFO is that access
is governed by access to the FIFO.  Refer to the example in patch 5.

The first 4 patches are preparation, including patch 4 which enhances the
--control option to accept file names.

Patch 5 adds snapshot control command.

The final patch updates Intel PT documentation.

Adrian Hunter (6):
      perf tools: Consolidate --control option parsing into one function
      perf tools: Handle read errors from ctl_fd
      perf tools: Use AsciiDoc formatting for --control option documentation
      perf tools: Add FIFO file names as alternative options to --control
      perf record: Add 'snapshot' control command
      perf intel-pt: Document snapshot control command
