Hi Leo,

Thanks for your test and sorry for missing the reproducing info.
The attachment is my test procedure, i can reproduce this issue
with it on kernel 5.5-rc4 definitely.

I have tested these patches on kernel 5.5-rc4, with intel-pt on Xeon
Gold 6140 (72 cores) and arm-spe on HiSilicon Hi1620 (128 cores).
But i can not test CoreSight temporarily, could you please test it
with the test procedure again?

P.s. Running the test procedure as a normal process is enough.

Thanks,
Wei
