SubjectRe: [RFC v3 5/5] perf tools: Add support to process multi spe events
Date

Hi Xiaojun,

> It may be that you did not recompile the kernel. In order to support this method, I modified the spe driver, which requires recompiling the kernel to support it.

Ah yes sorry I missed that there were kernel changes. I'm currently trying to understand what additional behavior is. The way I understand it, is that it is that it's already
possible to configure the filtering like this: ./perf record -e arm_spe/ts_enable=1,branch_filter=1/ ls. So the new synthetic SPE events aren't strictly necessary.

I think it would be best to avoid kernel changes because the SPE driver has been in the kernel for quite some time now. And relying on a new version in perf will
make it more difficult for people to access this feature easily.

Do you think it will be possible to get all the functionality with the existing driver? I think RFC v2 was working quite well, apart from the multiple events issue.
But maybe that is not that important of a use case. And it would be better to get a basic version accepted sooner.


Regards
James
