There was a report of NULL pointer dereference in ETF enable
path for perf CS mode with PID monitoring. It is almost 100%
reproducible when the process to monitor is something very
active such as chrome and with ETF as the sink, not ETR.

But code path shows that ETB has a similar path as ETF, so
there could be possible NULL pointer dereference crash in
ETB as well. Currently in a bid to find the pid, the owner
is dereferenced via task_pid_nr() call in etb_enable_perf()
and with owner being NULL, we can get a NULL pointer
dereference, so have a similar fix as ETF where we cache PID
in alloc_buffer() callback which is called as the part of
