[PATCH -tip v2 2/9] [BUGFIX] perf probe: Fix line walker to check CUcorrectly

From: Masami Hiramatsu
Date: Thu Aug 11 2011 - 07:26:54 EST

Fix line walker to check whether a given DIE is CU or not.
Actually this function accepts CU, subprogram and
inlined_subroutine DIEs.

Without this fix, perf probe always fails to analyze lines
on inlined functions;

$ perf probe -L pre_schedule
Debuginfo analysis failed. (-2)
Error: Failed to show lines. (-2)

This fixes that bug, as below.

$ perf probe -L pre_schedule
0 static inline void pre_schedule(struct rq *rq, struct task_struct *prev
2 if (prev->sched_class->pre_schedule)
3 prev->sched_class->pre_schedule(rq, prev);

/* rq->lock is NOT held, but preemption is disabled */

Changes from v1:
- Update against current tip tree.(Fix dwarf-aux.c)
