[PATCH 3/7] perf top: Fix a segfault when kernel map is restricted.

From: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo
Date: Mon Apr 27 2015 - 13:04:51 EST

From: Wang Nan <wangnan0@xxxxxxxxxx>

Perf top raise a warning if a kernel sample is collected but kernel map
is restricted. The warning message needs to dereference al.map->dso...

However, previous perf_event__preprocess_sample() doesn't always
guarantee al.map != NULL, for example, when kernel map is restricted.

This patch validates al.map before dereferencing, avoid the segfault.

Before this patch:

$ cat /proc/sys/kernel/kptr_restrict
$ perf top -p 120183
perf: Segmentation fault
-------- backtrace --------

And gdb call trace:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
