Subject[PATCH] powerpc/perf: Fix for core/nest imc call trace on cpuhotplug
Date
Nest/core pmu units are enabled only when it is used. A reference count is      
maintained for the events which uses the nest/core pmu units. Currently in
*_imc_counters_release function a WARN() is used for notification of any
underflow of ref count.

The case where event ref count hit a negative value is, when perf session is
started, followed by offlining of all cpus in a given core.
i.e. in cpuhotplug offline path ppc_core_imc_cpu_offline() function set the
ref->count to zero, if the current cpu which is about to offline is the last
cpu in a given core and make an OPAL call to disable the engine in that core.
And on perf session termination, perf->destroy (core_imc_counters_release) will
first decrement the ref->count for this core and based on the ref->count value
an opal call is made to disable the core-imc engine.
Now, since cpuhotplug path already clears the ref->count for core and disabled
the engine, perf->destroy() decrementing again at event termination make it
negative which in turn fires the WARN_ON. The same happens for nest units.

Add a check to see if the reference count is alreday zero, before decrementing
the count, so that the ref count will not hit a negative value.
