[PATCH v2 1/5] perf inject: fix broken perf inject -b

From: Stephane Eranian
Date: Tue May 15 2012 - 07:35:19 EST

perf inject -b was broken. It would not inject any build_id
into the stream. Furthermore, it would strip samples from the

The reason was a missing initialization of the event attribute
structure. The perf_tool.tool.attr() callback was pointing to
a simple repipe. But there was no initialization of the internal
data structures to keep track of events and event ids. That later
caused event id lookups to fail, and sample would get removed.

The patch simply adds back the call to perf_event__process_attr()
to initialize the evlist structure and now build_ids are again
