perf symbols: Fix dso lookup by long name and missing buildids
Commit 4598a0a6d22f ("perf symbols: Improve DSO long names lookup speed with rbtree") Added a tree to lookup dsos by long name. That tree gets corrupted whenever a dso long name is changed because the tree is not updated. One effect of that is buildid-list does not work with the 'with-hits' option because dso lookup fails and results in two structs for the same dso. The first has the buildid but no hits, the second has hits but no buildid. e.g. Before: $ tools/perf/perf record ls arch certs CREDITS Documentation firmware include ipc Kconfig lib Makefile net REPORTING-BUGS scripts sound usr block COPYING crypto drivers fs init Kbuild kernel MAINTAINERS mm README samples security tools virt [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ] [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.012 MB (11 samples) ] $ tools/perf/perf buildid-list 574da826c66538a8d9060d393a8866289bd06005 [kernel.kallsyms] 30c94dc66a1fe95180c3d68d2b89e576d5ae213c /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ $ tools/perf/perf buildid-list -H 574da826c66538a8d9060d393a8866289bd06005 [kernel.kallsyms] 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000 /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ After: $ tools/perf/perf buildid-list -H 574da826c66538a8d9060d393a8866289bd06005 [kernel.kallsyms] 30c94dc66a1fe95180c3d68d2b89e576d5ae213c /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ The fix is to record the root of the tree on the dso so that dso__set_long_name() can update the tree when the long name changes.
