Hello all,

a) Compiling the current fixes branch with a minimal config I get the
following error:

riscv64-unknown-linux-gnu-ld: arch/riscv/kernel/perf_callchain.o: in
function `.L0 ':
perf_callchain.c:(.text+0x16a): undefined reference to `walk_stackframe'
make: *** [Makefile:1074: vmlinux] Error 1


I've removed the static delcaration of walk_stackframe on stackframe.c
and marked walk_stackframe as extern on perf_callchain.c to fix the
above issue.


b) Then If I compile the kernel without CONFIG_RISCV_BASE_PMU I get


./arch/riscv/include/asm/perf_event.h:26:2: error: #error "Please
provide a valid RISCV_MAX_COUNTERS for the PMU."
 #error "Please provide a valid RISCV_MAX_COUNTERS for the PMU."


I noticed that the only place where CONFIG_RISCV_BASE_PMU is checked is
on perf_event.h and only for this parameter that's not defined anywhere
else. So for now if one tries to compile the kernel without PMU the
kernel won't compile + I don't see how unsetting this saves code size as
the config description says.


Since I'm not familiar with the perf code how should I approach this ?
Is the fix on a correct ? How should we handle b ?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Regards,
Nick

Hi Nick,

Thanks for pointing out this.

The check was meant to warn new PMU developers that they should provide
this parameter for their PMU.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Will something like this help?

...
  #ifdef CONFIG_RISCV_BASE_PMU
  #define RISCV_MAX_COUNTERS      2
  #endif

+ #ifndef CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS
+ #define RISCV_MAX_COUNTERS      0
+ #endif

  #ifndef RISCV_MAX_COUNTERS
  #error "Please provide a valid RISCV_MAX_COUNTERS for the PMU."
  #endif

Greentime found the same issue:

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-riscv/CAEbi=3dk0R3HMnqsK1mSm2bewecdHm279f9zEq1pHWLPo9tdAg@mail.gmail.com/

Will fix this in the upcoming revision of these patches.

Beside the compile problem caused by:
[PATCH v3 5/8] riscv: mark some code and data as file-static
similar issue may happen when CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER is not defined.
I didn't see the CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER in stacktrace.c, and the 
conditional for !CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER looks quite strange, keep
adding the sp and read pc from that?

        ksp = (unsigned long *)sp;
        while (!kstack_end(ksp)) {
                if (__kernel_text_address(pc) && unlikely(fn(pc, arg)))
                        break;
                pc = (*ksp++) - 0x4;
        }

A conditional for perf_callchain_kernel might be properly to fix that.

The content inside perf_event.h mostly relate to HW PMU. Other
architectures normally put them inside perf_event.c or pmu.h, they are
not compiled when CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS is selected and HW PMU is not
selected, user can use software event under this configuration.
Base pmu shouldn't be registed when it is defined in dts.
I think it can be fixed by put the content inside perf_event.h
into a riscv_pmu.h, only compile perf_event.c when CONFIG_RISCV_BASE_PMU
is selected or add conditional inside it:
