    perf stat: Fix endless wait for child process · 8a99255a
    Jin Yao authored
    We hit a 'perf stat' issue by using following script:
      sleep 1000 &
      exec perf stat -a -e cycles -I1000 -- sleep 5
    Since "perf stat" is launched by exec, the "sleep 1000" would be the
    child process of "perf stat". The wait4() call will not return because
    it's waiting for the child process "sleep 1000" to end. So 'perf stat'
    doesn't return even after 5s passes.
    This patch lets 'perf stat' return when the specified child process ends
    (in this case, the specified child process is "sleep 5").
    Committer testing:
      # cat test.sh
      sleep 10 &
      exec perf stat -a -e cycles -I1000 -- sleep 5
      # time ./test.sh
      #           time             counts unit events
