perf: Find_get_context: fix the per-cpu-counter check

If task == NULL, find_get_context() should always check that cpu
is correct.

Afaics, the bug was introduced by 38a81da2 "perf events: Clean
up pid passing", but even before that commit "&& cpu != -1" was
not exactly right, -ESRCH from find_task_by_vpid() is not
accurate.
