Subject[patch 010/100] tracing/core: fix early free of cpumasks
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------
From: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com>

upstream commit: 2fc1dfbe17e7705c55b7a99da995fa565e26f151

Impact: fix crashes when tracing cpumasks

While ring-buffer allocation, the cpumasks are allocated too,
including the tracing cpumask and the per-cpu file mask handler.
But these cpumasks are freed accidentally just after.
Fix it.
