Subject[PATCH V9 7/8] perf, x86: introduce PERF_RECORD_LOST_SAMPLES
Date
From: Kan Liang <kan.liang@intel.com>

After enlarging the PEBS interrupt threshold, there may be some mixed up
PEBS samples which are discarded by kernel. This patch drives the kernel
to emit a PERF_RECORD_LOST_SAMPLES record with the number of possible
discards when it is impossible to demux the samples. It makes sure the
user is not left in the dark about such discards.
