so record__sig_exit took care of waiting the child even
in case the record fails before running the workload

after your change all error cases just delete session
and go away, ending up with parent dead and go_pipe
released executing the workload

with attached patch, current perf code:

[jolsa@krava perf]$ ./perf.old record -e cycles -m 10G true
rounding mmap pages size to 17179869184 bytes (4194304 pages)
Permission error mapping pages.
Consider increasing /proc/sys/kernel/perf_event_mlock_kb,
or try again with a smaller value of -m/--mmap_pages.
(current value: 4194304)
true: Terminated

with attached patch, your change:

[jolsa@krava perf]$ ./perf record -e cycles -m 10G true
rounding mmap pages size to 17179869184 bytes (4194304 pages)
Permission error mapping pages.
Consider increasing /proc/sys/kernel/perf_event_mlock_kb,
or try again with a smaller value of -m/--mmap_pages.
(current value: 4194304)
unable to read pipe: No such file or directory


I think that after creating the workload, all error paths
need to release(wait) the child if there's any

thanks,
jirka
