Hi,

It has been observed that pmcstat can run out of buckets leading to an assert,
when converting trace data into gprof compatible format. Applying the following
patch, temporarily solves the problem:

diff --git a/usr.sbin/pmcstat/pmcpl_gprof.c b/usr.sbin/pmcstat/pmcpl_gprof.c

            assert(image->pi_end > image->pi_start);

            pgf->pgf_ndatabytes = sizeof(struct gmonhdr) +
                pgf->pgf_nbuckets * sizeof(HISTCOUNTER);
            pgf->pgf_nsamples = 0;
