Subject[PATCH] tracing/perf: Fix double put of trace event when init fails
From: "Steven Rostedt (Google)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

If in perf_trace_event_init(), the perf_trace_event_open() fails, then it
will call perf_trace_event_unreg() which will not only unregister the perf
trace event, but will also call the put() function of the tp_event.

The problem here is that the trace_event_try_get_ref() is called by the
caller of perf_trace_event_init() and if perf_trace_event_init() returns a
failure, it will then call trace_event_put(). But since the
perf_trace_event_unreg() already called the trace_event_put() function, it
triggers a WARN_ON().

WARNING: CPU: 1 PID: 30309 at kernel/trace/trace_dynevent.c:46 trace_event_dyn_put_ref+0x15/0x20

If perf_trace_event_reg() does not call the trace_event_try_get_ref() then
the perf_trace_event_unreg() should not be calling trace_event_put(). This
breaks symmetry and causes bugs like these.

Pull out the trace_event_put() from perf_trace_event_unreg() and call it
in the locations that perf_trace_event_unreg() is called. This not only
fixes this bug, but also brings back the proper symmetry of the reg/unreg
vs get/put logic.
