Okay thanks for the inputs.

> The preemption needs to be disabled when submitting data into perf.

I actually looked at other places where perf_trace_buf_prepare and
perf_trace_buf_submit are being called. for example perf_syscall_enter
and perf_syscall_exit both call the above routines and they didnt seem
to be called with premption disabled. Is that the way perf probe is
called in our case that needs us to call pre-emption here? Did you see a
case where calling these without preemption disabled caused a problem?
