perf tests: No need to set attr.sample_freq in the perf time to TSC test
We were asking for a 4kHz sample_freq, making the test fail needlessly when the system reduced /proc/sys/kernel/perf_event_max_sample_rate below that. In this test we only look at the PERF_SAMPLE_TIME fields in PERF_RECORD_ meta events, no need to set sample_freq. Thanks to Namhyung for suggesting that max_sample_rate could be the reason for the test failure, seeing the 'perf test -vv' output I sent. Before: # echo 1000 > /proc/sys/kernel/perf_event_max_sample_rate # perf test TSC 45: Test converting perf time to TSC : FAILED! After: # perf test TSC 45: Test converting perf time to TSC : Ok # cat /proc/sys/kernel/perf_event_max_sample_rate 1000 Cc: Adrian Hunter <> Cc: David Ahern <> Cc: Jiri Olsa <> Cc: Namhyung Kim <> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <> Cc: Wang Nan <> Link: Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <>
