From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

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


From: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 804234f27180dcf9a25cb98a88d5212f65b7f3fd upstream.

We'll set a new machine field based on env->arch, which for live mode,
like with 'perf top' means we need to use uname() to figure the name of
the arch, fix perf_env__arch() to consider both (env == NULL) and
(env->arch == NULL) as local operation.
