Subject[PATCH v3] perf evsel: Enable ignore_missing_thread for pid option
Date
While monitoring a multithread process with pid option, perf sometimes
may return sys_perf_event_open failure with 3(No such process) if any
of the process's threads die before we open the event. However, we want
perf continue monitoring the remaining threads and do not exit with error.

Here, the patch enables perf_evsel::ignore_missing_thread for -p option
to ignore complete failure if any of threads die before we open the event.
But it may still return sys_perf_event_open failure with 22(Invalid) if we
monitors several event groups.

sys_perf_event_open: pid 28960 cpu 40 group_fd 118202 flags 0x8
sys_perf_event_open: pid 28961 cpu 40 group_fd 118203 flags 0x8
WARNING: Ignored open failure for pid 28962
sys_perf_event_open: pid 28962 cpu 40 group_fd [118203] flags 0x8
sys_perf_event_open failed, error -22

That is because when we ignore a missing thread, we change the thread_idx
without dealing with its fds, FD(evsel, cpu, thread). Then get_group_fd()
may return a wrong group_fd for the next thread and sys_perf_event_open()
return with 22.

sys_perf_event_open(){
...
if (group_fd != -1)
perf_fget_light()//to get corresponding group_leader by group_fd
...
if (group_leader)
if (group_leader->ctx->task != ctx->task)//should on the same task
goto err_context
...
}

This patch also fixes this bug by introducing perf_evsel__remove_fd() and
update_fds to allow removing fds for the missing thread.

Changes since v1:
- Change group_fd__remove() into a more genetic way without changing code logic
- Remove redundant condition

Changes since v2:
- Use a proper function name and add some comment.
- Multiline comment style fixes.
