perf tools: Fix buffer overflow error when specifying all tracepoints
I found when specifying all tracepoints with -e to one of subcommand, such as 'stat', the program will trigger a buffer overflow error, like this: *** buffer overflow detected ***: ./perf terminated ======= Backtrace: ========= /lib64/libc.so.6(__fortify_fail+0x37)[0x382cefb2c7] .... The tracepoints are separated by comma, something like this: $ perf stat -a -e `perf list |grep Tracepoint|awk -F'[' '{gsub(/[[:space:]]+/,"",$1);array[FNR]=$1}END{outputs=array[1];for (i=2;i<=FNR;i++){ outputs=outputs "," array[i];};print outputs}'` The root reason of this problem is that store_event_type() is called for all events, and will overflow the 'filename' at: strncat(filename, orgname, strlen(orgname)); This patch fixes it by calling store_event_type() only when the event name has been found.
