please move that multiline conditional code inside {} brackets

I like it, but it looks like the previous code displayed those
bits in another order.. I managed to catch this one:

  1337c1337
  <              --0.53%--menu_select menu.c:218 (iterations:6 predicted:0.0%)
  ---
  >              --0.53%--menu_select menu.c:218 (predicted:0.0% iterations:6)

I think we better keep the current order, which seems
to be the goal of the original code as well

this function is perfect candidate for automated test ;-)
(something like we did in tests/kmod-path.c)

thanks,
jirka

v5:
---
   Mainly the v5 patch series are updated according to
   comments from Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com>.

   The kernel part doesn't have functional change. It just
   solve the merge issue.

   In userspace, the functions of branch type counting and
   branch type name resolving are moved to the new files: 
   util/branch.c, util/branch.h.

   And refactor the branch info printing code for better
   maintenance.

Not changed (or just fix merge issue):
  perf/core: Define the common branch type classification
  perf/x86/intel: Record branch type
  perf record: Create a new option save_type in --branch-filter

New patches:
  perf report: Refactor the branch info printing code
  perf util: Create branch.c/.h for common branch functions

Changed:
  perf report: Show branch type statistics for stdio mode
  perf report: Show branch type in callchain entry

v4:
---
1. Describe the major changes in patch description.
   Thanks for Peter Zijlstra's reminding. 

2. Initialize branch type to 0 in intel_pmu_lbr_read_32 and
   intel_pmu_lbr_read_64. Remove the invalid else code in
   intel_pmu_lbr_filter. 

v3:
---
1. Move the JCC forward/backward and cross page computing from
   kernel to userspace.

2. Use lookup table to replace original switch/case processing.

Changed:
  perf/core: Define the common branch type classification
  perf/x86/intel: Record branch type
  perf report: Show branch type statistics for stdio mode
  perf report: Show branch type in callchain entry

Not changed:
  perf record: Create a new option save_type in --branch-filter

v2:
---
1. Use 4 bits in perf_branch_entry to record branch type.

2. Pull out some common branch types from FAR_BRANCH. Now the branch
   types defined in perf_event.h:

It is often useful to know the branch types while analyzing branch
data. For example, a call is very different from a conditional branch.

Currently we have to look it up in binary while the binary may later
not be available and even the binary is available but user has to take
some time. It is very useful for user to check it directly in perf
report.

Perf already has support for disassembling the branch instruction
to get the x86 branch type.

To keep consistent on kernel and userspace and make the classification
more common, the patch adds the common branch type classification
in perf_event.h.

PERF_BR_NONE      : unknown
PERF_BR_JCC       : conditional jump
PERF_BR_JMP       : jump
PERF_BR_IND_JMP   : indirect jump
PERF_BR_CALL      : call
PERF_BR_IND_CALL  : indirect call
PERF_BR_RET       : return
PERF_BR_SYSCALL   : syscall
PERF_BR_SYSRET    : syscall return
PERF_BR_IRQ       : hw interrupt/trap/fault
PERF_BR_INT       : sw interrupt
PERF_BR_IRET      : return from interrupt
PERF_BR_FAR_BRANCH: not generic far branch type

The patch also adds a new field type (4 bits) in perf_branch_entry
to record the branch type.

Since the disassembling of branch instruction needs some overhead,
a new PERF_SAMPLE_BRANCH_TYPE_SAVE is introduced to indicate if it
needs to disassemble the branch instruction and record the branch
type.

Change log
----------

v5: Not changed. The v5 patch series just change the userspace.

v4: Comparing to previous version, the major changes are:

1. Remove the PERF_BR_JCC_FWD/PERF_BR_JCC_BWD, they will be
   computed later in userspace.

2. Remove the "cross" field in perf_branch_entry. The cross page
   computing will be done later in userspace.

Perf already has support for disassembling the branch instruction
and using the branch type for filtering. The patch just records
the branch type in perf_branch_entry.

Before recording, the patch converts the x86 branch type to
common branch type.

Change log
----------

v5: Just fix the merge error. No other update.

v4: Comparing to previous version, the major changes are:

1. Uses a lookup table to convert x86 branch type to common branch
   type.

2. Move the JCC forward/JCC backward and cross page computing to
   user space.

3. Initialize branch type to 0 in intel_pmu_lbr_read_32 and
   intel_pmu_lbr_read_64

The option indicates the kernel to save branch type during sampling.

One example:
perf record -g --branch-filter any,save_type <command>

The branch info such as predicted/cycles/... are printed at the
callchain entries.

For example: perf report --branch-history --no-children --stdio

    --1.07%--main div.c:39 (predicted:52.4% cycles:1 iterations:17)
              main div.c:44 (predicted:52.4% cycles:1)
              main div.c:42 (cycles:2)
              compute_flag div.c:28 (cycles:2)
              compute_flag div.c:27 (cycles:1)
              rand rand.c:28 (cycles:1)
              rand rand.c:28 (cycles:1)
              __random random.c:298 (cycles:1)
              __random random.c:297 (cycles:1)
              __random random.c:295 (cycles:1)
              __random random.c:295 (cycles:1)
              __random random.c:295 (cycles:1)

But the current code is difficult to maintain and extend. This patch
refactors the code for easy maintenance.

Create new util/branch.c and util/branch.h to contain the common
branch functions. Such as:

branch_type_count(): Count the numbers of branch types
branch_type_name() : Return the name of branch type

The branch type is saved in branch_flags.

Show the branch type statistics at the end of perf report --stdio.

For example:
perf report --stdio

 JCC forward:  27.6%
JCC backward:  10.0%
    CROSS_4K:   0.0%
    CROSS_2M:  14.3%
         JCC:  37.6%
         JMP:   0.0%
     IND_JMP:   6.5%
        CALL:  26.6%
    IND_CALL:   0.0%
         RET:  29.3%

The branch types are:
---------------------
 JCC forward: Conditional forward jump
JCC backward: Conditional backward jump
         JMP: Jump imm
     IND_JMP: Jump reg/mem
        CALL: Call imm
    IND_CALL: Call reg/mem
         RET: Ret
     SYSCALL: Syscall
      SYSRET: Syscall return
         IRQ: HW interrupt/trap/fault
         INT: SW interrupt
        IRET: Return from interrupt
  FAR_BRANCH: Others not generic branch type

CROSS_4K and CROSS_2M:
----------------------
They are the metrics checking for branches cross 4K or 2MB pages.
It's an approximate computing. We don't know if the area is 4K or
2MB, so always compute both.

To make the output simple, if a branch crosses 2M area, CROSS_4K
will not be incremented.

Change log
----------

v5: Remove the unnecessary sort__mode checking in
    hist_iter__branch_callback().

v4: Comparing to previous version, the major changes are:

Add the computing of JCC forward/JCC backward and cross page checking
by using the from and to addresses.

Show branch type in callchain entry. The branch type is printed
with other LBR information (such as cycles/abort/...).

For example:
perf report --branch-history --stdio --no-children

--23.56%--main div.c:42 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:2)
          compute_flag div.c:28 (cycles:2)
          compute_flag div.c:27 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:1)
          rand rand.c:28 (cycles:1)
          rand rand.c:28 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:1)
          __random random.c:298 (cycles:1)
          __random random.c:297 (JCC backward CROSS_2M cycles:1)
          __random random.c:295 (cycles:1)
          __random random.c:295 (JCC backward CROSS_2M cycles:1)
          __random random.c:295 (cycles:1)
          __random random.c:295 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:9)

Change log
----------

v5: Rewrite the branch info print code in util/callchain.c.

v4: Comparing to previous version, the major changes are:

Since we have to compute the JCC forward/JCC backward and cross
page checking in user space by from and to addresses, while each
callchain entry only contains one ip (either from or to), so
this patch will append a branch from address to the callchain
entry which just contains the to ip.
