Subject: [PATCH 1/2] perf tools: Compare dso's also when comparing symbols
Date: Tue, 15 Oct 2013 11:01:56 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1381802517-18812-1-git-send-email-namhyung@kernel.org> (raw)

From: Namhyung Kim <namhyung.kim@lge.com>

Linus reported that sometimes 'perf report -s symbol' exits without
any message on TUI.  David and Jiri found that it's because it failed
to add a hist entry due to an invalid symbol length.

It turns out that sorting by symbol (address) was broken since it only
compares symbol addresses.  The symbol address is a relative address
within a dso thus just checking its address can result in merging
unrelated symbols together.  Fix it by checking dso before comparing
symbol address.
