Digging a bit deeper into this, it seems the event itself is getting
created by perf_event_open() and it gets added to the pmu_event_list
through:

perf_event_open()
- perf_event_alloc()
- account_event()
- account_pmu_sb_event()
- attach_sb_event()

so at this point the event is being attached but its ->ctx is still
NULL. It seems like ->ctx is set just a bit later in
perf_event_open(), though.

But before that, __schedule() comes along and creates a stack trace
similar to the one above:

__schedule()
- __perf_event_task_sched_out()
- perf_iterate_sb()
- perf_iterate_sb_cpu()
- event_filter_match()
- perf_cgroup_match()
- __get_cpu_context()
- (dereference ctx which is NULL)

So I guess the question is... should the event be attached (= put on
the list) before ->ctx gets set? Or should the cgroup code check for a
NULL ->ctx?

I'm seeing the NUL ptr deref in __perf_event_task_sched_in() as well, btw.

I'm thinking this is probably where the bug was introduced:
