Subject: [GIT PULL] perf fixes

Linus,

Please pull the latest perf-urgent-for-linus git tree from:

   git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git perf-urgent-for-linus

   # HEAD: 3577af70a2ce4853d58e57d832e687d739281479 perf: Fix a race condition in perf_remove_from_context()

Two kernel side fixes: a kprobes fix and a 
perf_remove_from_context() fix (which does
not yet fix the migration bug which is WIP).

 Thanks,

	Ingo
