Subject: [RFC][PATCH 1/3] perf: Tighten (and fix) the grouping condition
Date: Fri, 23 Jan 2015 13:52:00 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20150123125834.090683288@infradead.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20150123125159.696530128@infradead.org>

[-- Attachment #1: peterz-perf-fix-grouping.patch --]
[-- Type: text/plain, Size: 2413 bytes --]

The fix from 9fc81d87420d ("perf: Fix events installation during
moving group") was incomplete in that it failed to recognise that
creating a group with events for different CPUs is semantically
broken -- they cannot be co-scheduled.

Furthermore, it leads to real breakage where, when we create an event
for CPU Y and then migrate it to form a group on CPU X, the code gets
confused where the counter is programmed -- triggered by the fuzzer.

Fix this by tightening the rules for creating groups. Only allow
grouping of counters that can be co-scheduled in the same context.
This means for the same task and/or the same cpu.

Fixes: 9fc81d87420d ("perf: Fix events installation during moving group")
