tools/kvm_stat: fix fields filter for child events
The fields filter would not work with child fields, as the respective parents would not be included. No parents displayed == no childs displayed. To reproduce, run on s390 (would work on other platforms, too, but would require a different filter name): - Run 'kvm_stat -d' - Press 'f' - Enter 'instruct' Notice that events like instruction_diag_44 or instruction_diag_500 are not displayed - the output remains empty. With this patch, we will filter by matching events and their parents. However, consider the following example where we filter by instruction_diag_44: kvm statistics - summary regex filter: instruction_diag_44 Event Total %Total CurAvg/s exit_instruction 276 100.0 12 instruction_diag_44 256 92.8 11 Total 276 12 Note that the parent ('exit_instruction') displays the total events, but the childs listed do not match its total (256 instead of 276). This is intended (since we're filtering all but one child), but might be confusing on first sight. Signed-off-by: Stefan Raspl <raspl@linux.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@redhat.com>
