Subject[PATCH 0/4] perf trace fixes
Hi Arnaldo:

As I mentioned on IRC perf-trace fails on older kernels -- like RHEL6. This
set of patches makes it at least usable - though still some problems I am
hoping you can fix.

Build perf with these patches and run:

perf trace -- dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/zero bs=4096 count=16

you see something like this which is just wrong:

3.684 ( 0.007 ms): write(buf: 2, count: 140737077958816 ) = 27

there is no fd (should be 1 for the write) and all the values are wrong.
Perhaps it is an artifact of the older way of doing system call tracing, but
I see something goofy with the 3.12 kernel as well:
5.633 ( 0.004 ms): write(fd: 2, buf: 0x7fff9177fee0, count: 24 ) = 24

According to strace that should be a return of 4096.

David Ahern (4):
perf trace: Add support for syscalls vs raw_syscalls
perf trace: Fix crash on RHEL6
perf trace: Fix summary percentage when processing files
perf trace: Add option to specify machine type
