SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] perf_counter: optimize context switch between identical inherited contexts

Good point. Doing the unclone in find_get_context would be a start,
but the locking could get tricky (in fact we don't have any way to
remove an inherited counter from a context, so we only have to worry
about counters being attached). I'll work out a solution after I have
digested your recent batch of patches.

Paul.
