Subject[PATCH v4 3/8] tools, perf, script: Add --insn-trace for instruction decoding
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

Add a --insn-trace short hand option for decoding and disassembling
instruction streams for intel_pt. This automatically pipes the
output into the xed disassembler to generate disassembled instructions.
This just makes this use model much nicer to use

Before

% perf record -e intel_pt// ...
% perf script --itrace=i0ns --ns -F +insn,-event,-period | xed -F insn: -A -64
swapper 0 [000] 117276.429606186: ffffffff81010486 pt_config ([kernel.kallsyms]) nopl %eax, (%rax,%rax,1)

swapper 0 [000] 117276.429606186: ffffffff81010645 pt_event_add ([kernel.kallsyms]) mov $0xffffffea, %eax
swapper 0 [000] 117276.429606186: ffffffff8101064a pt_event_add ([kernel.kallsyms]) mov $0x0, %edx
swapper 0 [000] 117276.429606186: ffffffff8101064f pt_event_add ([kernel.kallsyms]) popq %rbx
swapper 0 [000] 117276.429606186: ffffffff81010650 pt_event_add ([kernel.kallsyms]) cmovnz %edx, %eax
swapper 0 [000] 117276.429606186: ffffffff81010653 pt_event_add ([kernel.kallsyms]) jmp 0xffffffff81010635
swapper 0 [000] 117276.429606186: ffffffff81010635 pt_event_add ([kernel.kallsyms]) retq
swapper 0 [000] 117276.429606186: ffffffff8115e687 event_sched_in.isra.107 ([kernel.kallsyms]) test %eax, %eax

Now

% perf record -e intel_pt// ...
% perf script --insn-trace
... same output ...
