Subject: [PATCH] perf/core: Avoid removing shared pmu_context on unregister

In commit 1fd7e4169954 ("perf/core: Remove perf_cpu_context::unique_pmu"),
the search for another user of the pmu_cpu_context was removed, and so
we unconditionally free it during perf_pmu_unregister. This leads to
random corruption later and a BUG at mm/percpu.c:689.

Fixes: 1fd7e4169954 ("perf/core: Remove perf_cpu_context::unique_pmu")
