4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Thomas Richter <tmricht@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit 3440fe2790aa3d13530260af6033533b18959aee ]

Commit d78ada4a767 ("perf tests attr: Do not store failed events") does
not create an event file in the /tmp directory when the
perf_open_event() system call failed.

This can lead to a situation where not /tmp/event-xx-yy-zz result file
exists at all (for example on a s390x virtual machine environment) where
no CPUMF hardware is available.

The following command then fails with a python call back chain instead
of printing failure:

  [root@s8360046 perf]# /usr/bin/python2 ./tests/attr.py -d ./tests/attr/ \
      -p ./perf -v -ttest-stat-basic
  running './tests/attr//test-stat-basic'
  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "./tests/attr.py", line 379, in <module>
    File "./tests/attr.py", line 370, in main
    File "./tests/attr.py", line 311, in run_tests
      Test(f, options).run()
    File "./tests/attr.py", line 300, in run
      self.compare(self.expect, self.result)
    File "./tests/attr.py", line 248, in compare
  UnboundLocalError: local variable 'res_event' referenced before assignment
  [root@s8360046 perf]#

This patch catches this pitfall and prints an error message instead:

  [root@s8360047 perf]# /usr/bin/python2 ./tests/attr.py -d ./tests/attr/ \
       -p ./perf  -vvv -ttest-stat-basic
