So this is the one:

[acme@ssdandy linux]$ git bisect good
0f58474ec835f6fc80af2cde2c7ed5495cd212ba is the first bad commit
commit 0f58474ec835f6fc80af2cde2c7ed5495cd212ba

perf hists: Update hists' total period when adding entries

Currently the hist entry addition path doesn't update total_period of
hists and it's calculated during 'resort' path. But the resort path
needs to know the total period before doing its job because it's used
for calculating percent limit of callchains in hist entries.

So this patch update the total period during the addition path. It
makes the percent limit of callchains working (again).

[acme@ssdandy linux]$

So we this in this cset:

Fixes: 0f58474ec835 ("perf hists: Update hists' total period when adding entries")

And it needs to go to # v4.4+

[acme@ssdandy linux]$ git describe 0f58474ec835f6fc80af2cde2c7ed5495cd212ba

Please double check this, I'll be OOO in a moment.
