Subject[PATCH 10/44] perf tools: Add doc about how to build perf with Asan and UBSan
Date
From: Changbin Du <changbin.du@gmail.com>

AddressSanitizer (or ASan) and UndefinedBehaviorSanitizer (or UBSan) are
very useful tools to detect program bugs:

- AddressSanitizer (or ASan) is a GCC feature that detects memory
corruption bugs such as buffer overflows and memory leaks.

- UndefinedBehaviorSanitizer (or UBSan) is a fast undefined behavior
detector supported by GCC. UBSan detects undefined behaviors of programs
at runtime.

This patch adds a document about how to use them on perf. Later patches will fix
some of the issues disclosed by them.

+==========================
+ $ cd tools/perf
+ $ make DESTDIR=/usr
+ $ make DESTDIR=/usr install
+
+AddressSanitizer (or ASan) is a GCC feature that detects memory corruption bugs
+such as buffer overflows and memory leaks.
+
+ $ cd tools/perf
+ $ make DEBUG=1 EXTRA_CFLAGS='-fno-omit-frame-pointer -fsanitize=address'
+ $ ASAN_OPTIONS=log_path=asan.log ./perf record -a
+
+ASan outputs all detected issues into a log file named 'asan.log.<pid>'.
+
+UndefinedBehaviorSanitizer (or UBSan) is a fast undefined behavior detector
+supported by GCC. UBSan detects undefined behaviors of programs at runtime.
+
+ $ cd tools/perf
+ $ make DEBUG=1 EXTRA_CFLAGS='-fno-omit-frame-pointer -fsanitize=undefined'
+ $ UBSAN_OPTIONS=print_stacktrace=1 ./perf record -a
+
+If UBSan detects any problem at runtime, it outputs a “runtime error:” message.
