I wonder, was it inspired by yet-to-be committed
ring_buffer__consume() or it's just a coincidence?

we don't check this in perf_buffer__poll, IMO, checking this in every
"method" is an overkill.

no need to check. It's either non-NULL for valid perf_buffer, or
calloc could return NULL if pb->cpu_cnt is zero (not sure it's
possible, but still), but then loop below will never access
pb->cpu_bufs[i].

I think pb->cpu_bufs[i] check is wrong, it will stop iteration
prematurely if cpu_bufs are sparsely populated. So move check inside
and continue loop if NULL.

nit: declare it together with "i" above, similar to how
perf_buffer__poll does it
