Subject: perf: Fix sys_perf_event_open() race against self
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>
commit 3ac6487e584a1eb54071dbe1212e05b884136704 upstream.
Norbert reported that it's possible to race sys_perf_event_open() such
that the looser ends up in another context from the group leader,
triggering many WARNs.
The move_group case checks for races against itself, but the
!move_group case doesn't, seemingly relying on the previous
group_leader->ctx == ctx check. However, that check is racy due to not
holding any locks at that time.
Therefore, re-check the result after acquiring locks and bailing
if they no longer match.
Additionally, clarify the not_move_group case from the
move_group-vs-move_group race.
