Subject: [RFC PATCH 1/4] perf/core: split context's event group list into pinned and non-pinned lists

Split-up struct perf_event_context::group_list into pinned_grp_list
and volatile_grp_list (non-pinned).

This first appears to be useless as it duplicates various loops around
the group list handlings.

But it scales better in the fast-path in perf_sched_in(). We don't
anymore iterate twice through the entire list to separate pinned and
non-pinned scheduling. Instead we interate through two distinct lists.

The another desired effect is that it makes easier the distinct
scheduling rules for both.
