SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/7] perf cs-etm: Split up etm queue setup function
Hi James,

The new introduced function cs_etm__search_first_timestamp() is to
search timestamp; if it cannot find any valid timestamp, it will
drop all packets for every queue with the logic:

cs_etm__search_first_timestamp()
{
timestamp = cs_etm__etmq_get_timestamp();

if (timestamp)
return auxtrace_heap__add(); -> heapify timestamp

cs_etm__clear_all_packet_queues(); -> clear all packets
return 0;
}

If the function cs_etm__search_first_timestamp() is invoked for multiple
times, is it possible to clear all packets in the middle of decoding?

From my understanding, it makes sense to drop the trace data at the
very early decoding so that can get the timestamp for packets,
afterwards the packets should always have valid timestamp? If so, I
don't think it's necessary to contain the function
cs_etm__clear_all_packet_queues() in cs_etm__search_first_timestamp().

I will go back to check this conclusion is correct or not after I
have better understanding for the whole patch set. Just note here.

Thanks,
Leo
