so this could be called for event which is already scheduled out:

perf_event_exit_task_context
task_ctx_sched_out <- unschedules event
perf_event_exit_event
sync_child_event
perf_event_read_event
perf_output_read

if leader != events (which is, if you don't have Mark's fix),
we'll call leader->pmu->read(leader) even if it's not scheduled in
