[PATCH 0/6] perf tools: Share map groups within process

From: Jiri Olsa
Date: Tue Mar 18 2014 - 11:56:48 EST

this patchset moves thread's map_groups to be dynamically
allocated and shared within process threads.

The main benefit would be to be able to look up memory
map from any thread that belongs to the process.

This implements one of the solution ideas for issue
described by Don in following thread:

RFC changes:
- added automated test for thread map groups get/put methods
- fix reference count for case described by Namhyung
- rename the mmap-events.c test to mmap-thread-lookup.c
- added PROT_EXEC to mmap call in tests/mmap-thread-lookup.c
as it's not implied by default on all archs (Namhyung)
- lazy mg allocation in thread__find_addr_map (Namhyung)
- fix compilation failures (Arnaldo)
