Subject: [PATCH] perf/x86: set pmu->module in Intel PMU modules

The conversion of Intel PMU drivers into modules did not include reference
counting. The machine will crash when attempting to  access deleted code
if an event from a module PMU is started and the module removed before the
event is destroyed.

i.e. this crashes the machine:

	$ insmod intel-rapl-perf.ko
	$ perf stat -e power/energy-cores/ -C 0 &
	$ rmmod intel-rapl-perf.ko

Set THIS_MODULE to pmu->module in Intel module PMUs so that generic code
can handle reference counting and deny rmmod while an event still exists.
