[PATCH 4.4 100/192] [PATCH 104/135] perf/x86/cqm: Fix CQM handling of grouping events into a cache_group

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Sep 12 2016 - 13:34:03 EST

4.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


[ Upstream commit a223c1c7ab4cc64537dc4b911f760d851683768a ]

Currently CQM (cache quality of service monitoring) is grouping all
events belonging to same PID to use one RMID. However its not counting
all of these different events. Hence we end up with a count of zero
for all events other than the group leader.

The patch tries to address the issue by keeping a flag in the
perf_event.hw which has other CQM related fields. The field is updated
at event creation and during grouping.
