Subject[PATCH] perf cgroups: Don't rotate events for cgroups unnecessarily
From
Currently perf_rotate_context assumes that if the context's nr_events !=
nr_active a rotation is necessary for perf event multiplexing. With
cgroups, nr_events is the total count of events for all cgroups and
nr_active will not include events in a cgroup other than the current
task's. This makes rotation appear necessary for cgroups when it is not.

Add a perf_event_context flag that is set when rotation is necessary.
Clear the flag during sched_out and set it when a flexible sched_in
fails due to resources.
