Subject[PATCH 4.18 055/235] perf powerpc: Fix callchain ip filtering when return address is in a register
Date
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Sandipan Das <sandipan@linux.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit 9068533e4f470daf2b0f29c71d865990acd8826e ]

For powerpc64, perf will filter out the second entry in the callchain,
i.e. the LR value, if the return address of the function corresponding
to the probed location has already been saved on its caller's stack.

The state of the return address is determined using debug information.
At any point within a function, if the return address is already saved
somewhere, a DWARF expression can tell us about its location. If the
return address in still in LR only, no DWARF expression would exist.

Typically, the instructions in a function's prologue first copy the LR
value to R0 and then pushes R0 on to the stack. If LR has already been
copied to R0 but R0 is yet to be pushed to the stack, we can still get a
DWARF expression that says that the return address is in R0. This is
indicating that getting a DWARF expression for the return address does
not guarantee the fact that it has already been saved on the stack.

This can be observed on a powerpc64le system running Fedora 27 as shown
below.
