perf script: Support using -f to override perf.data file ownership
Enable perf script to use perf.data when it is not owned by current user or root. Change the short option name of --fields to -F to avoid confusion with --force. Example: # perf record ls # chown Yunlong.Song:Yunlong.Song perf.data # ls -al perf.data -rw------- 1 Yunlong.Song Yunlong.Song 28360 Apr 2 14:53 perf.data # id uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root),64(pkcs11) Before this patch: # perf script File perf.data not owned by current user or root (use -f to override) # perf script -f Error: switch `f' requires a value usage: perf script [<options>] or: perf script [<options>] record <script> [<record-options>] <command> or: perf script [<options>] report <script> [script-args] or: perf script [<options>] <script> [<record-options>] <command> or: perf script [<options>] <top-script> [script-args] -f, --fields <str> comma separated output fields prepend with 'type:'. Valid types: hw,sw,trace,raw. Fields: comm,tid,pid,time,cpu,event,trace,ip,sym,dso,addr,symoff,period As shown above, the -f option does not work at all. And -f is already taken up by --fields, which makes --force confused, so change the short option name of --fields to -F like what other perf commands do (e.g. perf report -F) and use -f as the short option name of --force. After this patch: # perf script File perf.data not owned by current user or root (use -f to override) # perf script -f :41298 41298 2590086.564226: 1 cycles: ffffffff8103efc6 native_write_msr_safe ([kernel.kallsyms]) :41298 41298 2590086.564244: 1 cycles: ffffffff8103efc6 native_write_msr_safe ([kernel.kallsyms]) :41298 41298 2590086.564249: 7 cycles: ffffffff8103efc6 native_write_msr_safe ([kernel.kallsyms]) :41298 41298 2590086.564255: 176 cycles: ffffffff8103efc6 native_write_msr_safe ([kernel.kallsyms]) ls 41298 2590086.567346: 4059 cycles: ffffffff8105a592 raise_softirq ([kernel.kallsyms]) ls 41298 2590086.567353: 3717 cycles: ffffffff8105a592 raise_softirq ([kernel.kallsyms]) ls 41298 2590086.567358: 63058 cycles: ffffffff8105a592 raise_softirq ([kernel.kallsyms]) ls 41298 2590086.567448: 1706255 cycles: 406ae0 [unknown] (/usr/bin/ls) As shown above, the -f option really works now.
