Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.4 21/65] perf/core: Don't leak event in the syscall error path
Date
From: Alexander Shishkin <alexander.shishkin@linux.intel.com>

[ Upstream commit 201c2f85bd0bc13b712d9c0b3d11251b182e06ae ]

In the error path, event_file not being NULL is used to determine
whether the event itself still needs to be free'd, so fix it up to
avoid leaking.
