Subject: [PATCH] perf tools: Fix segfault for kernel.kptr_restrict=2
Date: Mon, 26 Jun 2017 11:51:53 +0200
Message-ID: <20170626095153.553-1-jolsa@kernel.org> (raw)

Michael reported the segfault when kernel.kptr_restrict=2 is set.

$ perf record ls
...
perf: Segmentation fault
Obtained 16 stack frames.

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

The reason is that with kernel.kptr_restrict=2, we don't get
the symbol from machine__get_running_kernel_start, which we
want to use in maps__set_kallsyms_ref_reloc_sym and we crash.

Check the symbol name value before calling
maps__set_kallsyms_ref_reloc_sym and succeed without
ref_reloc_sym being set. It's safe because we check
its existence before we use it.
