perf_events: Fix perf_counter_mmap() hook in mprotect()
As pointed out by Linus, commit dab5855 ("perf_counter: Add mmap event hooks to mprotect()") is fundamentally wrong as mprotect_fixup() can free 'vma' due to merging. Fix the problem by moving perf_event_mmap() hook to mprotect_fixup(). Note: there's another successful return path from mprotect_fixup() if old flags equal to new flags. We don't, however, need to call perf_event_mmap() there because 'perf' already knows the VMA is executable.
