perf intel-pt: Fix "context_switch event has no tid" error
A context_switch event can have no tid because pids can be detached from a task while the task is still running (in do_exit()). Note this won't happen with per-task contexts because then tracing stops at perf_event_exit_task() If a task with no tid gets preempted, or a dying task gets preempted and its parent releases it, when it subsequently gets switched back in, Intel PT will not be able to determine what task is running and prints an error "context_switch event has no tid". However, it is not really an error because the task is in kernel space and the decoder can continue to decode successfully. Fix by changing the error to be only a logged message, and make allowance for tid == -1. Example: Using 5.9-rc4 with Preemptible Kernel (Low-Latency Desktop) e.g. $ uname -r 5.9.0-rc4 $ grep PREEMPT .config # CONFIG_PREEMPT_NONE is not set # CONFIG_PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY is not set CONFIG_PREEMPT=y CONFIG_PREEMPT_COUNT=y CONFIG_PREEMPTION=y CONFIG_PREEMPT_RCU=y CONFIG_PREEMPT_NOTIFIERS=y CONFIG_DRM_I915_PREEMPT_TIMEOUT=640 CONFIG_DEBUG_PREEMPT=y # CONFIG_PREEMPT_TRACER is not set # CONFIG_PREEMPTIRQ_DELAY_TEST is not set Before: $ cat forkit.c #include <sys/types.h> #include <unistd.h> #include <sys/wait.h> int main() { pid_t child;
