perf archive: Correct cutting of symbolic link
If a '$PERF_BUILDID_DIR'(typically $HOME/.debug) is a symbolic link directory, cutting of the path will fail. Here is an example where a buildid directory is a symbolic link. / # ls -al /root lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 Mar 26 2012 /root -> opt/home/root / # cd ~ /opt/home/root # perf record -a -g sleep 1 [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ] [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.322 MB perf.data (~14057 samples) ] /opt/home/root # perf archive tar: Removing leading `/' from member names Now please run: $ tar xvf perf.data.tar.bz2 -C ~/.debug wherever you need to run 'perf report' on. /opt/home/root # mkdir temp /opt/home/root # tar xf perf.data.tar.bz2 -C ./temp /opt/home/root # find ./temp -name "*kernel*" ./temp/opt/home/root/.debug/[kernel.kallsyms] -> If successfully cut off the path, [kernel.kallsyms] is located in top of the archived file. This patch enables to cut correctly even if the buildid directory is a symbolic link.
