perf tools: Ensure comm string is properly terminated
If threads in a multi-threaded process have names shorter than the main thread the comm for the named threads is not properly terminated. E.g., for the process 'namedthreads' where each thread is named noploop%d where %d is the thread number: Before: perf script -f comm,tid,ip,sym,dso noploop:4ads 21616 400a49 noploop (/tmp/namedthreads) The 'ads' in the thread comm bleeds over from the process name. After: perf script -f comm,tid,ip,sym,dso noploop:4 21616 400a49 noploop (/tmp/namedthreads) Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Cc: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1330111898-68071-1-git-send-email-dsahern@gmail.com Signed-off-by: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
