Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 3.18 84/98] perf: Fix PERF_EVENT_IOC_PERIOD deadlock
Date
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

[ Upstream commit 642c2d671ceff40e9453203ea0c66e991e11e249 ]

Dmitry reported a fairly silly recursive lock deadlock for
PERF_EVENT_IOC_PERIOD, fix this by explicitly doing the inactive part of
__perf_event_period() instead of calling that function.
