Subject[PATCH] fix race caused by hyperthreads when online an offline cpu
Date
After online an offline cpu, cpu_hw_events.excl_thread_id will always be
set to 1 in intel_pmu_cpu_starting() even when its sibling's excl_thread_id
is also 1. Then the two siblings will use the same state in their shared
hw_hw_events.excl_cntrs, it will cause race problem.

The race senario is like this:

Two cpu (7 and 19) are siblings, excl_thread_id of 7 and 19 are 0 and 1.
After offline and online cpu 7, intel_pmu_cpu_starting() will set excl_thread_id
of cpu 7 to 1. Then both cpu 7 and 19 will use the same state in their
shared hw_hw_events.excl_cntrs.
