Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.18 049/131] perf evlist: Fix error out while applying initial delay and LBR
Date
From: Kan Liang <kan.liang@linux.intel.com>

[ Upstream commit 95035c5e167ae6e740b1ddd30210ae0eaf39a5db ]

'perf record' will error out if both --delay and LBR are applied.

For example:

# perf record -D 1000 -a -e cycles -j any -- sleep 2
Error:
dummy:HG: PMU Hardware doesn't support sampling/overflow-interrupts.
Try 'perf stat'
#

A dummy event is added implicitly for initial delay, which has the same
configurations as real sampling events. The dummy event is a software
event. If LBR is configured, perf must error out.

The dummy event will only be used to track PERF_RECORD_MMAP while perf
waits for the initial delay to enable the real events. The BRANCH_STACK
bit can be safely cleared for the dummy event.

After applying the patch:

# perf record -D 1000 -a -e cycles -j any -- sleep 2
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 1.054 MB perf.data (828 samples) ]
