perf/x86/intel: Delay memory deallocation until x86_pmu_dead_cpu()
commit 602cae04c4864bb3487dfe4c2126c8d9e7e1614a upstream. intel_pmu_cpu_prepare() allocated memory for ->shared_regs among other members of struct cpu_hw_events. This memory is released in intel_pmu_cpu_dying() which is wrong. The counterpart of the intel_pmu_cpu_prepare() callback is x86_pmu_dead_cpu(). Otherwise if the CPU fails on the UP path between CPUHP_PERF_X86_PREPARE and CPUHP_AP_PERF_X86_STARTING then it won't release the memory but allocate new memory on the next attempt to online the CPU (leaking the old memory). Also, if the CPU down path fails between CPUHP_AP_PERF_X86_STARTING and CPUHP_PERF_X86_PREPARE then the CPU will go back online but never allocate the memory that was released in x86_pmu_dying_cpu(). Make the memory allocation/free symmetrical in regard to the CPU hotplug notifier by moving the deallocation to intel_pmu_cpu_dead(). This started in commit: a7e3ed1e47011 ("perf: Add support for supplementary event registers"). In principle the bug was introduced in v2.6.39 (!), but it will almost certainly not backport cleanly across the big CPU hotplug rewrite between v4.7-v4.15...
