Subject: [PATCH 01/20] perf: Add PERF_EVENT_STATE_EXIT state for events with exited task

Adding new perf event state to indicate that the monitored
task has exited.  In this case the event stays alive until
the owner task exits or close the event fd while providing
the last data through the read syscall and ring buffer.

Instead it needs to propagate the error info (monitored task
has died)  via poll and read  syscalls by  returning POLLHUP
and 0 respectively.
