Subject: [PATCH 5.0 136/346] perf/arm-cci: Remove broken race mitigation

[ Upstream commit 0d2e2a82d4de298d006bf8eddc86829e3c7da820 ]

Uncore PMU drivers face an awkward cyclic dependency wherein:

 - They have to pick a valid online CPU to associate with before
   registering the PMU device, since it will get exposed to userspace
   immediately.
 - The PMU registration has to be be at least partly complete before
   hotplug events can be handled, since trying to migrate an
   uninitialised context would be bad.
 - The hotplug handler has to be ready as soon as a CPU is chosen, lest
   it go offline without the user-visible cpumask value getting updated.

The arm-cci driver has tried to solve this by using get_cpu() to pick
the current CPU and prevent it from disappearing while both
registrations are performed, but that results in taking mutexes with
preemption disabled, which makes certain configurations very unhappy:

[ 1.983337] BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at kernel/locking/rtmutex.c:2004

It is not feasible to resolve all the possible races outside of the perf
core itself, so address the immediate bug by following the example of
nearly every other PMU driver and not even trying to do so. Registering
the hotplug notifier first should minimise the window in which things
can go wrong, so that's about as much as we can reasonably do here. This
also revealed an additional race in assigning the global pointer too
late relative to the hotplug notifier, which gets fixed in the process.
