Maybe return -ENOMEM here already.

Combined with the below (extra for_each_cpu loop) you might want to
think of the 'normal' error handling goto chain.

err_online:
	for_each_online_cpu(cpu2) {
		if (cpu2 == cpu)
			break;

		/* cleanup cpu2 */
	}
err_l2:
	perf_pmu_unregister(nb);
	free_percpu(nb);
err_nb:
	return ret;

Then you can propagate the error here, instead of assuming -ENOMEM.

I think you want a second for_each_online_cpu() loop and undo the work
for the other CPUs before calling unregister etc..
