[PATCH 0/9] perf annotation of BPF programs




This series enables annotation of BPF programs in perf.

perf tool gathers information via sys_bpf and (optionally) stores them in
perf.data as headers.

Patch 1/9 fixes a minor issue in kernel;
Patch 2/9 to 4/9 introduce new helper functions and use them in perf and
     bpftool;
Patch 5/9 and 6/9 saves information of bpf program in perf_env;
Patch 7/9 adds --bpf-event options to perf-top;
Patch 8/9 enables annotation of bpf programs based on information gathered
     in 5/9 and 6/9;
Patch 9/9 handles information of short living BPF program that are loaded
     during perf-record or perf-top.

Commands tested during developments are perf-top, perf-record, perf-report,
and perf-annotate.
