perf record: Fix s390 missing module symbol and warning for non-root users
commit 6738028dd57df064b969d8392c943ef3b3ae705d upstream. Command 'perf record' and 'perf report' on a system without kernel debuginfo packages uses /proc/kallsyms and /proc/modules to find addresses for kernel and module symbols. On x86 this works for root and non-root users. On s390, when invoked as non-root user, many of the following warnings are shown and module symbols are missing: proc/{kallsyms,modules} inconsistency while looking for "[sha1_s390]" module! Command 'perf record' creates a list of module start addresses by parsing the output of /proc/modules and creates a PERF_RECORD_MMAP record for the kernel and each module. The following function call sequence is executed: machine__create_kernel_maps machine__create_module modules__parse machine__create_module --> for each line in /proc/modules arch__fix_module_text_start Function arch__fix_module_text_start() is s390 specific. It opens file /sys/module/<name>/sections/.text to extract the module's .text section start address. On s390 the module loader prepends a header before the first section, whereas on x86 the module's text section address is identical the the module's load address. However module section files are root readable only. For non-root the read operation fails and machine__create_module() returns an error. Command perf record does not generate any PERF_RECORD_MMAP record for loaded modules. Later command perf report complains about missing module maps. To fix this function arch__fix_module_text_start() always returns success. For root users there is no change, for non-root users the module's load address is used as module's text start address (the prepended header then counts as part of the text section). This enable non-root users to use module symbols and avoid the warning when perf report is executed.
