perf/x86: Fix event scheduling
commit 26e61e8939b1fe8729572dabe9a9e97d930dd4f6 upstream. Vince "Super Tester" Weaver reported a new round of syscall fuzzing (Trinity) failures, with perf WARN_ON()s triggering. He also provided traces of the failures. This is I think the relevant bit: > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926153: x86_pmu_disable: x86_pmu_disable > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926153: x86_pmu_state: Events: { > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926156: x86_pmu_state: 0: state: .R config: ffffffffffffffff ( (null)) > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926158: x86_pmu_state: 33: state: AR config: 0 (ffff88011ac99800) > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926159: x86_pmu_state: } > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926160: x86_pmu_state: n_events: 1, n_added: 0, n_txn: 1 > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926161: x86_pmu_state: Assignment: { > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926162: x86_pmu_state: 0->33 tag: 1 config: 0 (ffff88011ac99800) > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926163: x86_pmu_state: } > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926166: collect_events: Adding event: 1 (ffff880119ec8800) So we add the insn:p event (fd[23]). At this point we should have: n_events = 2, n_added = 1, n_txn = 1 > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926170: collect_events: Adding event: 0 (ffff8800c9e01800) > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926172: collect_events: Adding event: 4 (ffff8800cbab2c00) We try and add the {BP,cycles,br_insn} group (fd[3], fd[4], fd[15]). These events are 0:cycles and 4:br_insn, the BP event isn't x86_pmu so that's not visible. group_sched_in() pmu->start_txn() /* nop - BP pmu */ event_sched_in() event->pmu->add() So here we should end up with: 0: n_events = 3, n_added = 2, n_txn = 2 4: n_events = 4, n_added = 3, n_txn = 3 But seeing the below state on x86_pmu_enable(), the must have failed, because the 0 and 4 events aren't there anymore. Looking at group_sched_in(), since the BP is the leader, its event_sched_in() must have succeeded, for otherwise we would not have seen the sibling adds. But since neither 0 or 4 are in the below state; their event_sched_in() must have failed; but I don't see why, the complete state: 0,0,1:p,4 fits perfectly fine on a core2. However, since we try and schedule 4 it means the 0 event must have succeeded! Therefore the 4 event must have failed, its failure will have put group_sched_in() into the fail path, which will call: event_sched_out() event->pmu->del() on 0 and the BP event. Now x86_pmu_del() will reduce n_events; but it will not reduce n_added; giving what we see below: n_event = 2, n_added = 2, n_txn = 2 > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926177: x86_pmu_enable: x86_pmu_enable > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926177: x86_pmu_state: Events: { > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926179: x86_pmu_state: 0: state: .R config: ffffffffffffffff ( (null)) > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926181: x86_pmu_state: 33: state: AR config: 0 (ffff88011ac99800) > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926182: x86_pmu_state: } > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926184: x86_pmu_state: n_events: 2, n_added: 2, n_txn: 2 > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926184: x86_pmu_state: Assignment: { > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926186: x86_pmu_state: 0->33 tag: 1 config: 0 (ffff88011ac99800) > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926188: x86_pmu_state: 1->0 tag: 1 config: 1 (ffff880119ec8800) > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926188: x86_pmu_state: } > pec_1076_warn-2804 [000] d... 147.926190: x86_pmu_enable: S0: hwc->idx: 33, hwc->last_cpu: 0, hwc->last_tag: 1 hwc->state: 0 So the problem is that x86_pmu_del(), when called from a group_sched_in() that fails (for whatever reason), and without x86_pmu TXN support (because the leader is !x86_pmu), will corrupt the n_added state.
