From: David Miller <>
Subject: [PATCH] perf: Align cpu map events properly.
Date: Thu, 11 Oct 2018 22:46:55 -0700 (PDT)
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The size of the resulting cpu map can be smaller than a multiple
of sizeof(u64), resulting in SIGBUS on cpus like Sparc as the
next event will not be aligned properly.

Fixes: 6c872901af07 ("perf cpu_map: Add cpu_map event synthesize function")
Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
