perf: Add context field to perf_event
The perf_event overflow handler does not receive any caller-derived argument, so many callers need to resort to looking up the perf_event in their local data structure. This is ugly and doesn't scale if a single callback services many perf_events. Fix by adding a context parameter to perf_event_create_kernel_counter() (and derived hardware breakpoints APIs) and storing it in the perf_event. The field can be accessed from the callback as event->overflow_handler_context. All callers are updated.
