so if there is misconfigured session, it will get executed,
and then we catch that it exited, like:

# ./perf daemon start -f
[2021-02-11 17:38:19.718166] daemon started (pid 1167439)
[2021-02-11 17:38:19.719757] reconfig: ruining session [cycles:1167440]: abc -m 10M -e cycles --overwrite --switch-output -a
[2021-02-11 17:38:19.720861] reconfig: ruining session [sched:1167441]: -m 20M -e sched:* --overwrite --switch-output -a
[2021-02-11 17:38:21.132511] session 'cycles' exited, status=255

session will be removed

when the config is fixed and updated, daemon will pick it up:

[2021-02-11 17:42:59.241140] reconfig: ruining session [cycles:1167642]: -m 10M -e cycles --overwrite --switch-output -a


daemon_session__run fails only there's no memory for allocation,
if mkdir fails (for other error than EEXIST) and if fork fails,
so pretty serious errors, where we want to bail out anyway
