Hi folks,

I hit a segfault when try to analysis a perf.data generated in an aarch 64 board.
I tried execute perf report on x86 and arm64, both of them hit similar segfault:

 $ perf report -i ./buggy/perf.data --objdump=/path/to/aarch64-oe-linux-objdump --kallsyms /path/to/kallsyms

perf: Segmentation fault

I did some debugging and found the problem is raised at dso__load_kcore:

static int dso__load_kcore(struct dso *dso, struct map *map,
                           const char *kallsyms_filename)
{
        struct map_groups *kmaps = map__kmap(map)->kmaps;    // kmap is NULL here
        struct machine *machine = kmaps->machine;            // segfault.
        ...
}

Then I realised that if a struct map is created by machine__new_module with map__new2,
the map__kmap(map) is never set. However, if I set

        map->map_ip = map->unmap_ip = identity__map_ip;
        kmap = map__kmap(map);
        kmap->kmaps = &machine->kmaps;

in machine__new_module like in __machine__create_kernel_maps, I hit another problem:

Does anyone has any idea on it?

Thank you!
