perf: Fix double start/stop in x86_pmu_start()

The following patch fixes a bug introduced by the following
commit:

        e050e3f0a71b ("perf: Fix broken interrupt rate throttling")

The patch caused the following warning to pop up depending on
the sampling frequency adjustments:

  ------------[ cut here ]------------
  WARNING: at arch/x86/kernel/cpu/perf_event.c:995 x86_pmu_start+0x79/0xd4()

It was caused by the following call sequence:

perf_adjust_freq_unthr_context.part() {
     stop()
     if (delta > 0) {
          perf_adjust_period() {
              if (period > 8*...) {
                  stop()
                  ...
                  start()
              }
          }
      }
      start()
}

Which caused a double start and a double stop, thus triggering
the assert in x86_pmu_start().

The patch fixes the problem by avoiding the double calls. We
pass a new argument to perf_adjust_period() to indicate whether
or not the event is already stopped. We can't just remove the
start/stop from that function because it's called from
__perf_event_overflow where the event needs to be reloaded via a
stop/start back-toback call.

The patch reintroduces the assertion in x86_pmu_start() which
was removed by commit:

	84f2b9b ("perf: Remove deprecated WARN_ON_ONCE()")

In this second version, we've added calls to disable/enable PMU
during unthrottling or frequency adjustment based on bug report
of spurious NMI interrupts from Eric Dumazet.
