Subject: [PATCH 5.4 42/83] perf/core: fix parent pid/tid in task exit events

From: Ian Rogers <irogers@...gle.com>

commit f3bed55e850926614b9898fe982f66d2541a36a5 upstream.

Current logic yields the child task as the parent.

Before:
$ perf record bash -c "perf list > /dev/null"
$ perf script -D |grep 'FORK\|EXIT'
4387036190981094 0x5a70 [0x30]: PERF_RECORD_FORK(10472:10472):(10470:10470)
4387036606207580 0xf050 [0x30]: PERF_RECORD_EXIT(10472:10472):(10472:10472)
4387036607103839 0x17150 [0x30]: PERF_RECORD_EXIT(10470:10470):(10470:10470)
                                                   ^
  Note the repeated values here -------------------/

After:
383281514043 0x9d8 [0x30]: PERF_RECORD_FORK(2268:2268):(2266:2266)
383442003996 0x2180 [0x30]: PERF_RECORD_EXIT(2268:2268):(2266:2266)
383451297778 0xb70 [0x30]: PERF_RECORD_EXIT(2266:2266):(2265:2265)

Fixes: 94d5d1b2d891 ("perf_counter: Report the cloning task as parent on perf_counter_fork()")
