Subject: [PATCH 01/52] perf tools: Fix jump label always changing during tracing

Intel PT decoding walks the object code to reconstruct
the trace.  A jump label change during tracing causes
decoding errors.

The "Enable close-on-exec flag on perf file descriptor"
patch caused there to be always a jump label change.

It was found that using a per-cpu context instead of a
per-thread context for the probe of the close-on-exec
feature, made the problem go away.
