Subject[patch 110/164] perf_events: Fix resource leak in x86 __hw_perf_event_init()
2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com>

commit 4b24a88b35e15e04bd8f2c5dda65b5dc8ebca05f upstream.

If reserve_pmc_hardware() succeeds but reserve_ds_buffers()
fails, then we need to release_pmc_hardware. It won't be done
by the destroy() callback because we return before setting it
in case of error.
