Subject[RFT v2 1/4] perf cs-etm: Generate sample for missed packets
Date
Commit e573e978fb12 ("perf cs-etm: Inject capabilitity for CoreSight
traces") reworks the samples generation flow from CoreSight trace to
match the correct format so Perf report tool can display the samples
properly. But the change has side effect for packet handling, it only
generate samples when 'prev_packet->last_instr_taken_branch' is true,
this results in the start tracing packet and exception packets are
dropped.

This patch checks extra two conditions for complete samples:

- If 'prev_packet->sample_type' is zero we can use this condition to
get to know this is the start tracing packet; for this case, the start
packet's end_addr is zero as well so we need to handle it in the
function cs_etm__last_executed_instr();

- If 'prev_packet->exc' is true, we can know the previous packet is
exception handling packet so need to generate sample for exception
flow.
