x86/perf: Fix CR4.PCE propagation to use active_mm instead of mm

If one thread mmaps a perf event while another thread in the same mm
is in some context where active_mm != mm (which can happen in the
scheduler, for example), refresh_pce() would write the wrong value
to CR4.PCE.  This broke some PAPI tests.
