Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 05/26] perf evsel: Fix potential null pointer
 dereference in perf_evsel__new_idx()

From: Hisao Tanabe <xtanabe@...il.com>

[ Upstream commit fd8d2702791a970c751f8b526a17d8e725a05b46 ]

If evsel is NULL, we should return NULL to avoid a NULL pointer
dereference a bit later in the code.
