PT decoder didn't see the same instructions as during the trace collection.

There are many reasons which can cause this, usually (but not always) some form of
self modifying code. The Linux kernel does a lot of self modification these days,
which is a challenge for PT.

If you run the decoder as root it will decode from /proc/kcore, which helps, but
only if no jump label has changed state since the collection.

The perf PT decoder tends to resync relatively quickly, so usually not too much
is lost.
