Can you elaborate on this usage? It will helpful to know how
this is used and what do we get from it. What were we missing
with the way it was done before?

Is this patch based on linux-next or linux 5.6-rc1. I am finding code
path to be different in those. Also in
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/peterz/queue.git

goto err_ns makes more sense since if perf_init_event() doesn't return
valid pmu, especially since err_pmu tries to do a put pmu->module.

Something doesn't look right.
