Subject: [PATCH 5.4 254/434] perf tools: Splice events onto evlist even on error

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

[ Upstream commit 8e8714c3d157568b7a769917a5e05573bbaf5af0 ]

If event parsing fails the event list is leaked, instead splice the list
onto the out result and let the caller cleanup.

An example input for parse_events found by libFuzzer that reproduces
this memory leak is 'm{'.
