Perhaps something like the patch below (tested with kvm)? With this patch
we will actually waste ~4/8 bytes per PMU (intel,amd,p6) since this call
hits on p4 only, so I think perhaps better to use one x86 scheduler hook
instead of empty schedule_events() in PMU, hmm?

x86,perf: Fix NULL deref on not assigned x86_pmu

In case of not assigned x86_pmu and software events
NULL dereference may being hit via x86_pmu::schedule_events
method.

Fix it by calling x86_pmu::schedule_events only if we
have one. Otherwise use general scheduler.

Also the former x86_schedule_events calls restored.
