perf probe: Return a better scope DIE if there is no best scope
Make find_best_scope() returns innermost DIE at given address if there is no best matched scope DIE. Since Gcc sometimes generates intuitively strange line info which is out of inlined function address range, we need this fixup. Without this, sometimes perf probe failed to probe on a line inside an inlined function: # perf probe -D ksys_open:3 Failed to find scope of probe point. Error: Failed to add events. With this fix, 'perf probe' can probe it: # perf probe -D ksys_open:3 p:probe/ksys_open _text+25707308 p:probe/ksys_open_1 _text+25710596 p:probe/ksys_open_2 _text+25711114 p:probe/ksys_open_3 _text+25711343 p:probe/ksys_open_4 _text+25714058 p:probe/ksys_open_5 _text+2819653 p:probe/ksys_open_6 _text+2819701 Signed-off-by: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@kernel.org> Tested-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Ravi Bangoria <ravi.bangoria@linux.ibm.com> Cc: Steven Rostedt (VMware) <rostedt@goodmis.org> Cc: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@linux.intel.com> Link: http://lore.kernel.org/lkml/157291300887.19771.14936015360963292236.stgit@devnote2 Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
