perf perl scripts: Fix SIGALRM and pipe read race for rwtop
Fixing rwtop script race. The issue is caused by rwtop script triggering SIGALRM and underneath pipe reading layer reporting error when interrupted. Fixing this by setting SA_RESTART for rwtop SIGALRM handler, which avoids interruption of the pipe reading layer. The discussion for this issue & fix is here: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/9/18/123 Signed-off-by: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Original-patch-by: Andrew Jones <drjones@redhat.com> Cc: Andrew Jones <drjones@redhat.com> Cc: Corey Ashford <cjashfor@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Cc: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1360080351-3246-2-git-send-email-jolsa@redhat.com Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
