perf: Resurrect flat callchains
Frederic Weisbecker [Thu, 8 Jul 2010 04:06:17 +0000 (06:06 +0200)]
Initialize the callchain radix tree root correctly.

When we walk through the parents, we must stop after the root, but
since it wasn't well initialized, its parent pointer was random.

Also the number of hits was random because uninitialized, hence it
was part of the callchain while the root doesn't contain anything.

This fixes segfaults and percentages followed by empty callchains
while running:
