Subject[PATCH 4.9 21/87] s390/cpum_sf: ensure sample frequency of perf event attributes is non-zero
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Hendrik Brueckner <brueckner@linux.ibm.com>

commit 4bbaf2584b86b0772413edeac22ff448f36351b1 upstream.

Correct a trinity finding for the perf_event_open() system call with
a perf event attribute structure that uses a frequency but has the
sampling frequency set to zero. This causes a FP divide exception during
the sample rate initialization for the hardware sampling facility.

Fixes: 8c069ff4bd606 ("s390/perf: add support for the CPU-Measurement Sampling Facility")
