Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.20 03/42] perf stat: Fix endless wait for child process
Date
From: Jin Yao <yao.jin@linux.intel.com>

[ Upstream commit 8a99255a50c0b4c2a449b96fd8d45fcc8d72c701 ]

We hit a 'perf stat' issue by using following script:

#!/bin/bash

sleep 1000 &
exec perf stat -a -e cycles -I1000 -- sleep 5

Since "perf stat" is launched by exec, the "sleep 1000" would be the
child process of "perf stat". The wait4() call will not return because
it's waiting for the child process "sleep 1000" to end. So 'perf stat'
doesn't return even after 5s passes.

This patch lets 'perf stat' return when the specified child process ends
(in this case, the specified child process is "sleep 5").

Committer testing:

# cat test.sh
#!/bin/bash

sleep 10 &
exec perf stat -a -e cycles -I1000 -- sleep 5
#

# time ./test.sh
# time counts unit events
