[PATCH 09/27] perf tools: Attach eBPF program to perf event

From: Wang Nan
Date: Mon Aug 10 2015 - 02:22:04 EST

This is the final patch which makes basic BPF filter work. After
applying this patch, users are allowed to use BPF filter like:

# perf record --event ./hello_world.c ls

In this patch PERF_EVENT_IOC_SET_BPF ioctl is used to attach eBPF
program to a newly created perf event. The file descriptor of the
eBPF program is passed to perf record using previous patches, and
stored into evsel->bpf_fd.

It is possible that different perf event are created for one kprobe
events for different CPUs. In this case, when trying to call the
ioctl, EEXIST will be return. This patch doesn't treat it as an error.
