Subject: [PATCH perf/urgent] perf tools: Fix crash in ordered_events__free

Song Liu reported crash in perf record:

> #0  0x0000000000500055 in ordered_events(float, long double,...)(...) ()
> #1  0x0000000000500196 in ordered_events.reinit ()
> #2  0x00000000004fe413 in perf_session.process_events ()
> #3  0x0000000000440431 in cmd_record ()
> #4  0x00000000004a439f in run_builtin ()
> #5  0x000000000042b3e5 in main ()"

This can happen when we get out of the buffers during
event processing. The subsequent ordered_events__free
assumes the oe->buffer != NULL and crashes. Adding
the check to prevent that.
