So the only possible callchain here is:



The assertion states that:

if the event is a task event; and the context is active, it _must_ be
the same task.

Because: if the PMI happens during ctxsw (which has IRQs disabled), the
IPI will not happen until after the ctxsw, at which point we'll also
have switched out the perf context of that task -- IOW the context
should be inactive.

Anyway, it looks like a virt issue; I'll start caring once you can
reproduce on real hardware.
