[PATCH v2 5/5] perf: make perf buildid-list work better with pipe mode

From: Stephane Eranian
Date: Tue May 15 2012 - 07:29:40 EST

In order for perf buildid-list to work with pipe-mode files,
it needs to process buildids and event attr structs.

$ perf record -o - noploop 2 | ./perf inject -b | perf buildid-list -i - -H
noploop for 2 seconds
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.084 MB - (~3678 samples) ]
0000000000000000000000000000000000000000 [kernel.kallsyms]
3a0d0629efe74a8da3eeba372cdbd74ad9b8f5d5 /usr/local/bin/noploop

The reason [kernel.kallsyms] shows a 0 build-id comes from the
way buildids are injected in the stream. The buildid for the kernel
is provided by a BUILD_ID record. The [kernel.kallsyms] is provided
by a MMAP record. There is no clean and obvious way to link the two,
unfortunately. In regular mode, the kernel buildid is generated from
reading the ELF image or kallsyms and perf knows to associate
[kernel.kallsyms] to it. Later on, when perf processes the
[kernel.kallsyms] MMAP record, it will already have a dso for it.

So for now, make sure perf buildid-list shows the buildids for
everything but the kernel image.
