Subject[PATCH v2] perf: Synchronously cleanup child events
Date
The orphan cleanup workqueue doesn't always catch orphans, for example,
if they never schedule after they are orphaned. IOW, the event leak is
still very real. It also wouldn't work for kernel counters.

Also, there seems to be no reason not to carry out this cleanup
procedure synchronously during parent event's destruction.

This patch replaces the workqueue approach with a simple cleanup round
in the event's destruction path. To avoid racing with clone, we still
check that parent event has an owner in the inheritance path.
