unaccount_pmu_sb_event did not check for attributes in event->attr
before calling detach_sb_event, while account_pmu_event did.

This caused NULL pointer reference in cgroup events that did not
have any of the attributes checked by account_pmu_event.

To trigger the bug just wait for a cgroup event to terminate, e.g.:

$ mkdir /dev/cgroup/devices/test
$ perf stat -e cycles -a -G test sleep 0

... see crash ...

Patch rebased on peterz/queue/perf/core .
