perf: Process comm events by tid
When we synthetize the existing running tasks though procfs, we walk through every threads of a process, queuing one comm events per tid. But then on report time, event__process_comm() only creates and sets the comm on a per process granularity. This is the right thing for comm events that came from the kernel, as they are only created on exec. Sub-threads then inherit their comm from fork events. But that doesn't work with our synthetized comm events taken from procfs informations as the per thread granularity is done on comm events directly there. Hence we need event__process_comm() to work with the tid rather than the pid. It won't change anything for comm events coming from the kernel but this will fix the synthetized ones. Before: $ ./perf report -D | grep COMM | grep firefox 0x2c7b8 [0x18]: PERF_RECORD_COMM: firefox:5297 0x2c7d0 [0x18]: PERF_RECORD_COMM: firefox:5297 0x2c7e8 [0x18]: PERF_RECORD_COMM: firefox:5297 0x2c800 [0x18]: PERF_RECORD_COMM: firefox:5297 0x2c818 [0x18]: PERF_RECORD_COMM: firefox:5297 0x2c830 [0x18]: PERF_RECORD_COMM: firefox:5297 After: $ ./perf report -D | grep COMM | grep firefox 0x2c7b8 [0x18]: PERF_RECORD_COMM: firefox:5297 0x2c7d0 [0x18]: PERF_RECORD_COMM: firefox:5299 0x2c7e8 [0x18]: PERF_RECORD_COMM: firefox:5300 0x2c800 [0x18]: PERF_RECORD_COMM: firefox:5308 0x2c818 [0x18]: PERF_RECORD_COMM: firefox:5309 0x2c830 [0x18]: PERF_RECORD_COMM: firefox:5312 This fixes various unresolved pid on perf sched.
