I tested this patch series on Hisilicon D06, it outputs the result as
expected. I am comfortable for the testing result based our two sides
on two different platforms.

Based on the discussion in the thread [1], IIUC, there have concern for
using CONTEXTIDR for non-root namespace. Thus the patch 08/08 is
limited to support PID tracing in the root namespace, so we have two
options:

Option 1: by merging patches 07/08 and 08/08, we can firstly support PID
tracing for root namespace, and later we can extend to support PID
tracing in container (and in VMs).

Option 2: we can use the software method to establish PID for SPE
trace, which can base on kernel's events PERF_RECORD_SWITCH /
PERF_RECORD_SWITCH_CPU_WIDE and check context switch ip.

To be honest, I am a bit concern for option 1 for later might
introduce regression when later support PID for containers (and VMs).
If you have a plan for option 1, I think it's good to record current
limitation and the plan for next step in the commit log, so we can merge
this patch at this time and later extend for containers.

Otherwise, we need to consider how to implement the PID tracing with
option 2. If it is the case, we should firstly only merge patches
01 ~ 06 for data source enabling. How about you think for this?

Besides for techinical question, you could add your "Co-developed-by"
tags for patches 06, 07, 08/08, which you have took time to refin them.

Thanks you for kindly efforts.
