Hi Ingo,

	Please consider pulling, this is on top of
perf-core-for-mingo-4.20-20180919, that is not yet in tip.

Test results at the end of this message, as usual.

The following changes since commit 24ef0fd0a1f389b156e6ef0edd71072728831bd9:

  perf python: Use -Wno-redundant-decls to build with PYTHON=python3 (2018-09-19 10:25:13 -0300)

----------------------------------------------------------------
perf/core improvements and fixes:

perf test:

- Add watchpoint entry (Ravi Bangoria)

Build fixes:

- Initialize perf_data_file fd field to fix building the CTF (trace format)
  converter with with gcc 4.8.4 on Ubuntu 14.04 (Jérémie Galarneau)

- Use -Wno-redundant-decls to build with PYTHON=python3 to
  build the python binding, fixing the build in systems such
  as Clear Linux (Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo)

Hardware tracing:

- Suppress AUX/OVERWRITE records (Alexander Shishkin)

Infrastructure:

- Adopt PTR_ERR_OR_ZERO from the kernel and use it in
  the bpf-loader instead of open coded equivalent (Ding Xiang)

- Improve the event ordering code to make it clear and fix
  a bug related to freeing of events when using pipe mode
  from 'record' to 'inject' (Jiri Olsa)

- Some prep work to facilitate per-cpu threads to write
  record data to per-cpu files (Jiri Olsa)

Test results:

The first ones are container (docker) based builds of tools/perf with
and without libelf support.  Where clang is available, it is also used
to build perf with/without libelf, and building with LIBCLANGLLVM=1
(built-in clang) with gcc and clang when clang and its devel libraries
are installed.

The objtool and samples/bpf/ builds are disabled now that I'm switching from
using the sources in a local volume to fetching them from a http server to
build it inside the container, to make it easier to build in a container cluster.
Those will come back later.

Several are cross builds, the ones with -x-ARCH and the android one, and those
may not have all the features built, due to lack of multi-arch devel packages,
available and being used so far on just a few, like
debian:experimental-x-{arm64,mipsel}.

The 'perf test' one will perform a variety of tests exercising
tools/perf/util/, tools/lib/{bpf,traceevent,etc}, as well as run perf commands
with a variety of command line event specifications to then intercept the
sys_perf_event syscall to check that the perf_event_attr fields are set up as
expected, among a variety of other unit tests.

Then there is the 'make -C tools/perf build-test' ones, that build tools/perf/
with a variety of feature sets, exercising the build with an incomplete set of
features as well as with a complete one. It is planned to have it run on each
of the containers mentioned above, using some container orchestration
infrastructure. Get in contact if interested in helping having this in place.

The Clear Linux container is building with NO_CLANG=1, the problem preventing
its use when building for python3 has been identified and the next builds will
build in ClearLinux with both gcc and clang. This time around only gcc was
used.
