Subject[74/85] perf: Clone child context from parent context pmu
3.2.49-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com>

commit 734df5ab549ca44f40de0f07af1c8803856dfb18 upstream.

Currently when the child context for inherited events is
created, it's based on the pmu object of the first event
of the parent context.

This is wrong for the following scenario:

- HW context having HW and SW event
- HW event got removed (closed)
- SW event stays in HW context as the only event
and its pmu is used to clone the child context

The issue starts when the cpu context object is touched
based on the pmu context object (__get_cpu_context). In
this case the HW context will work with SW cpu context
ending up with following WARN below.

Fixing this by using parent context pmu object to clone
from child context.

Addresses the following warning reported by Vince Weaver:
