perf: Fix race in removing an event
commit 46ce0fe97a6be7532ce6126bb26ce89fed81528c upstream. When removing a (sibling) event we do: raw_spin_lock_irq(&ctx->lock); perf_group_detach(event); raw_spin_unlock_irq(&ctx->lock); <hole> perf_remove_from_context(event); raw_spin_lock_irq(&ctx->lock); ... raw_spin_unlock_irq(&ctx->lock); Now, assuming the event is a sibling, it will be 'unreachable' for things like ctx_sched_out() because that iterates the groups->siblings, and we just unhooked the sibling. So, if during <hole> we get ctx_sched_out(), it will miss the event and not call event_sched_out() on it, leaving it programmed on the PMU. The subsequent perf_remove_from_context() call will find the ctx is inactive and only call list_del_event() to remove the event from all other lists. Hereafter we can proceed to free the event; while still programmed! Close this hole by moving perf_group_detach() inside the same ctx->lock region(s) perf_remove_from_context() has. The condition on inherited events only in __perf_event_exit_task() is likely complete crap because non-inherited events are part of groups too and we're tearing down just the same. But leave that for another patch.
