Subject[PATCH 2/6] perf core: Set event's default overflow_handler
Date
Set a default event->overflow_handler in perf_event_alloc() so don't
need checking event->overflow_handler in __perf_event_overflow().
Following commits can give a different default overflow_handler.

No extra performance introduced into hot path because in the original
code we still need reading this handler from memory. A conditional branch
is avoided so actually we remove some instructions.

Initial idea comes from Peter at [1].
