Subject: [PATCH] perf stat: Fix segfault on armv8_pmu events
Date: Wed,  7 Oct 2020 17:13:11 +0900
Message-ID: <> (raw)

It was reported that perf stat crashed when using with armv8_pmu (cpu)
events with the task mode.  As perf stat uses an empty cpu map for
task mode but armv8_pmu has its own cpu mask, it confused which map
should use when accessing file descriptors and caused segfaults:

  (gdb) bt
  #0  0x0000000000603fc8 in perf_evsel__close_fd_cpu (evsel=<optimized out>,
      cpu=<optimized out>) at evsel.c:122
  #1  perf_evsel__close_cpu (evsel=evsel@entry=0x716e950, cpu=7) at evsel.c:156
  #2  0x00000000004d4718 in evlist__close (evlist=0x70a7cb0) at util/evlist.c:1242

  #4  0x0000000000455058 in run_perf_stat (run_idx=1701998435, argv=0xfffffaea2f90,
      argc=1) at builtin-stat.c:947

  #6  0x00000000004bb888 in run_builtin (p=p@entry=0x9764b8 <commands+288>,

  #7  0x00000000004bbb54 in handle_internal_command (argc=argc@entry=4,
      argv=argv@entry=0xfffffaea2f90) at perf.c:364
  #8  0x0000000000435378 in run_argv (argcp=<synthetic pointer>,
      argv=<synthetic pointer>) at perf.c:408
  #9  main (argc=4, argv=0xfffffaea2f90) at perf.c:538

To fix this, I simply used the given cpu map unless the evsel actually
is not a system-wide event (like uncore events).
