perf/core: Fix use-after-free in perf_release()

Dmitry reported syzcaller tripped a use-after-free in perf_release().

After much puzzlement Oleg spotted the below scenario:

  Task1                           Task2

  fork()
    perf_event_init_task()
    /* ... */
    goto bad_fork_$foo;
    /* ... */
    perf_event_free_task()
      mutex_lock(ctx->lock)
      perf_free_event(B)

                                  perf_event_release_kernel(A)
                                    mutex_lock(A->child_mutex)
                                    list_for_each_entry(child, ...) {
                                      /* child == B */
                                      ctx = B->ctx;
                                      get_ctx(ctx);
                                      mutex_unlock(A->child_mutex);

        mutex_lock(A->child_mutex)
        list_del_init(B->child_list)
        mutex_unlock(A->child_mutex)

        /* ... */

      mutex_unlock(ctx->lock);
      put_ctx() /* >0 */
    free_task();
                                      mutex_lock(ctx->lock);
                                      mutex_lock(A->child_mutex);
                                      /* ... */
                                      mutex_unlock(A->child_mutex);
                                      mutex_unlock(ctx->lock)
                                      put_ctx() /* 0 */
                                        ctx->task && !TOMBSTONE
                                          put_task_struct() /* UAF */

This patch closes the hole by making perf_event_free_task() destroy the
task <-> ctx relation such that perf_event_release_kernel() will no longer
observe the now dead task.
