perf/core: Fix memory leak triggered by perf --namespace

perf with --namespace key leaks various memory objects including namespaces

  4.14.0+
  pid_namespace          1     12   2568   12    8
  user_namespace         1     39    824   39    8
  net_namespace          1      5   6272    5    8

This happen because perf_fill_ns_link_info() struct patch ns_path:
during initialization ns_path incremented counters on related mnt and dentry,
but without lost path_put nobody decremented them back.
Leaked dentry is name of related namespace,
and its leak does not allow to free unused namespace.
