    SubjectRe: [PATCH] x86: fix duplicate calls of the nmi handler

    I found the reason why we get the unknown nmi. For some reason
    cpuc->active_mask in x86_pmu_handle_irq() is zero. Thus, no counters
    are handled when we get an nmi. It seems there is somewhere a race
    accessing the active_mask. So far I don't have a fix available.
    Changing x86_pmu_stop() did not help:

    static void x86_pmu_stop(struct perf_event *event, int flags)
    struct cpu_hw_events *cpuc = &__get_cpu_var(cpu_hw_events);
    struct hw_perf_event *hwc = &event->hw;

    if (test_bit(hwc->idx, cpuc->active_mask)) {
    __clear_bit(hwc->idx, cpuc->active_mask);
    cpuc->events[hwc->idx] = NULL;
    WARN_ON_ONCE(hwc->state & PERF_HES_STOPPED);
    hwc->state |= PERF_HES_STOPPED;
