perf kvm/powerpc: Port perf kvm stat to powerpc
perf kvm can be used to analyze guest exit reasons. This support already exists in x86. Hence, porting it to powerpc. - To trace KVM events : perf kvm stat record If many guests are running, we can track for a specific guest by using --pid as in : perf kvm stat record --pid <pid> - To see the results : perf kvm stat report The result shows the number of exits (from the guest context to host/hypervisor context) grouped by their respective exit reasons with their frequency. Since, different powerpc machines have different KVM tracepoints, this patch discovers the available tracepoints dynamically and accordingly looks for them. If any single tracepoint is not present, this support won't be enabled for reporting. To record, this will fail if any of the events we are looking to record isn't available. Right now, its only supported on PowerPC Book3S_HV architectures. To analyze the different exits, group them and present them (in a slight descriptive way) to the user, we need a mapping between the "exit code" (dumped in the kvm_guest_exit tracepoint data) and to its related Interrupt vector description (exit reason). This patch adds this mapping in book3s_hv_exits.h. It records on two available KVM tracepoints for book3s_hv: "kvm_hv:kvm_guest_exit" and "kvm_hv:kvm_guest_enter". Here is a sample o/p: # pgrep qemu 19378 60515 2 Guests are running on the host. # perf kvm stat record -a ^C[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ] [ perf record: Captured and wrote 4.153 MB perf.data.guest (39624 samples) ] # perf kvm stat report -p 60515 Analyze events for pid(s) 60515, all VCPUs: VM-EXIT Samples Samples% Time% MinTime MaxTime Avg time SYSCALL 9141 63.67% 7.49% 1.26us 5782.39us 9.87us (+- 6.46%) H_DATA_STORAGE 4114 28.66% 5.07% 1.72us 4597.68us 14.84us (+-20.06%) HV_DECREMENTER 418 2.91% 4.26% 0.70us 30002.22us 122.58us (+-70.29%) EXTERNAL 392 2.73% 0.06% 0.64us 104.10us 1.94us (+-18.83%) RETURN_TO_HOST 287 2.00% 83.11% 1.53us 124240.15us 3486.52us (+-16.81%) H_INST_STORAGE 5 0.03% 0.00% 1.88us 3.73us 2.39us (+-14.20%) Total Samples:14357, Total events handled time:1203918.42us.
