user_events are shared across the entire group. They cannot be cleaned
up until all references are gone. This is true both in this case and the
in the user_events_ref_add() case.

The pattern is to register events in the group's hashtable, then add
them to the local file ref array that is RCU protected. If the file ref
cannot be allocated, etc. the refcount on user is decremented. If we
cannot create an enabler, the refcount is still held until file release.

If the event has already been added to the local file ref array, it is
returned to prevent another reference.

Good catch, yes I'll remove this.
