perf probe: Allow probing on kmodules without dwarf
Allow probing on kernel modules when 'perf' is built without debuginfo support. Currently perf-probe --module requires linking with libdw, but this doesn't make sense. E.g. ---- # make NO_DWARF=1 # ./perf probe -m pcspkr pcspkr_event%return Error: unknown switch `m' ---- With this patch ---- # ./perf probe -m pcspkr pcspkr_event%return Added new event: probe:pcspkr_event (on pcspkr_event%return in pcspkr) You can now use it in all perf tools, such as: perf record -e probe:pcspkr_event -aR sleep 1 ---- Signed-off-by: Masami Hiramatsu <masami.hiramatsu.pt@hitachi.com> Cc: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Wang Nan <wangnan0@huawei.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20151002125832.18617.78721.stgit@localhost.localdomain Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
