Actually, the new codes in __perf_install_in_context() only takes care whether
if events should be scheduled with PMU.

And the new codes in list_update_cgroup_event() don't want cpuctx->cgrp
to be set arbitrarily. The more logic, you mentioned, was added for making
sure cpuctx->cgrp is set consistently with the cgroup running on the cpu.

Yes, this is bit messy. I should've made it clear. This comment was supposed
to explain the reason why I modified the if statement below.

And the logic is

1) when cpuctx-> cgrp is NULL, we __must__ take care of how to set it
appropriately, that means, we __have to__ check if the cgroup is running
on the cpu

2) when cpuctx-> cgrp is __NOT__ NULL. It means cpuctx->cgrp had been
set appropriately by cgroup_switch() or list_update_cgroup_event() before.
Therefore, We do __nothing__ here

if (cpuctx->cgrp == NULL) /* As I said above, we only take
care this case. */
if (add && cgroup_is_descendant(cgrp->css.cgroup,
event->cgrp->css.cgroup)) {
/* only when this cgroup is running */
cpuctx->cgrp = cgrp;
}
