[PATCH 9/9] perf stat: Wait for the correct child




From: Milian Wolff <milian.wolff@xxxxxxxx>

When packaging the perf userland application into an AppImage, the
wait() call in perf stat returned too early. It turned out that some
other child process exited, but not the one perf stat launched:

  $ sudo strace -e fork,execve,clone,wait4 -f ./perf-x86_64.AppImage stat sleep 1
  execve("./perf-git.3a73b7f9-x86_64.AppImage", ["./perf-git.3a73b7f9-x86_64.AppIm"..., "stat", "sleep", "1"], 0x7ffec1bbf050 /* 18 vars */) = 0
  clone(child_stack=NULL, flags=CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID|CLONE_CHILD_SETTID|SIGCHLD, child_tidptr=0x7f6a6e7efe50) = 3912

This patch uses waitpid instead to ensure the call waits for the
debuggee application launched by 'perf stat'. This fixes 'perf stat'
when launched from an AppImage:

  $ ./perf-x86_64.AppImage stat sleep 1
