Subject[PATCH] perf: do not set task_ctx pointer in cpuctx if there is no events in the context
Do not set task_ctx pointer during sched_in if there is no
events associated with the context. Otherwise if during task
execution total number of events in the system will become zero
perf_event_context_sched_out() will not be called and cpuctx->task_ctx
will be left with a stale value.
