Subject: perf: bug in rdpmc/mmap accounting after exec
Date: Wed, 26 Jul 2017 15:39:01 -0400 (EDT)
Message-ID: <alpine.DEB.2.20.1707261530320.3810@macbook-air> (raw)


so one last bug found by the PAPI testsuite.

This one involves the rdpmc auto-disable on last unmap of an event 

Failing test case:

	exec()  // without closing or unmapping the event
	rdpmc()	// GPFs due to rdpmc being disabled

I won't pretend to be able to follow the rdpmc disabling code, but if I 
add some printks it looks like 
isn't properly being reset on exec?

In fact, current->mm->context.perf_rdpmc_allowed goes negative which seems
like it shouldn't happen?

Anyway, a test case for this can be found in the perf_event_tests,
