Subject[PATCH 26/93] arm64: perf: fix group validation when using enable_on_exec
Date
3.8.13.10 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Will Deacon <will.deacon@arm.com>

commit 8455e6ec70f33b0e8c3ffd47067e00481f09f454 upstream.

This is a port of cb2d8b342aa0 ("ARM: 7698/1: perf: fix group validation
when using enable_on_exec") to arm64, which fixes the event validation
checking so that events in the OFF state are still considered when
enable_on_exec is true.
