Subject[PATCH 4.1 12/78] perf: Fix PERF_EVENT_IOC_PERIOD migration race
Date
4.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

commit c7999c6f3fed9e383d3131474588f282ae6d56b9 upstream.

I ran the perf fuzzer, which triggered some WARN()s which are due to
trying to stop/restart an event on the wrong CPU.

Use the normal IPI pattern to ensure we run the code on the correct CPU.
