From: Kan Liang <kan.liang@linux.intel.com>

Current perf can report both virtual address and physical address, but
it doesn't report page size. Users have no idea how large the utilized
page is. They cannot promote/demote large pages to optimize memory use.

Add a new sample type for page size.

Current perf already has a facility to collect data virtual address.
A function, to retrieve page size by full page-table walk of a given
virtual address, is introduced for x86. Other architectures can
implement their own functions later separately.
The function must be IRQ-safe. For x86, disabling IRQs over the walk is
sufficient to prevent any tear down of the page tables.

The new sample type requires collecting the virtual address. The
virtual address will not be output unless SAMPLE_ADDR is applied.

Although only a few bits are needed to indicate the page size, a u64
type is still claimed for page_size. Because struct perf_sample_data
requires cacheline_aligned.

I welcome this feature, been wanting it for some time now. There is
simply not enough support in /proc/PID/maps or smaps to get this
information. This is important to improve code and data layouts.

I would like to see the following changes to your proposal:
   - call it PERF_SAMPLE_DATA_PAGE_SIZE

That would allow two things:
   1 - not tied to PERF_SAMPLE_ADDR
   2 - Allow PERF_SAMPLE_CODE_PAGE_SIZE to be added

In some measurements, you may just care about the distribution of accesses
across page sizes. No need to use double the buffer space to save the address
you will not use.

Layout is important for code as well, in fact, that's what most people
want first.
Having a CODE_PAGE_SIZE is therefore useful. I am happy adding it on top on your
proposal. Note that PERF_SAMPLE_CODE_PAGE_SIZE would not have to be tied
to PEBS unlike DATA_PAGE_SIZE.

Thanks.
