Subject: [PATCH 3.12 052/142] perf/core: Fix event inheritance on fork()

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@...radead.org>

3.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

===============

commit e7cc4865f0f31698ef2f7aac01a50e78968985b7 upstream.

While hunting for clues to a use-after-free, Oleg spotted that
perf_event_init_context() can loose an error value with the result
that fork() can succeed even though we did not fully inherit the perf
event context.
