Subject[PATCH 1/7] perf: Drop unappropriate tests on arch callchains
Date
Drop the TASK_RUNNING test on user tasks for callchains as
this check doesn't seem to make any sense.

Also remove the tests for !current that is not supposed to
happen and current->pid as this should be handled at the
generic level, with exclude_idle attribute.
