perf probe: Improve an error message of perf probe --vars mode
Fix an error message when failed to find given address in --vars mode. Without this fix, perf probe -V doesn't show the final "Error" message if it fails to find given source line. Moreover, it tells it fails to find "variables" instead of the source line. ----- # perf probe -V foo@bar Failed to find variables at foo@bar (0) ----- The result also shows mysterious error code. Actually the error returns 0 or -ENOENT means that it just fails to find the address of given source line. (0 means there is no matching address, and -ENOENT means there is an entry(DIE) but it has no instance, e.g. an empty inlined function) This fixes it to show what happened and the final error message as below. ----- # perf probe -V foo@bar Failed to find the address of foo@bar Error: Failed to show vars. ----- Signed-off-by: Masami Hiramatsu <masami.hiramatsu.pt@hitachi.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@kernel.org> Cc: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> 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/20140606071359.6788.84716.stgit@kbuild-fedora.novalocal Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
