Subject[PATCH 5.3 031/105] perf/core: Consistently fail fork on allocation failures
Date
From: Alexander Shishkin <alexander.shishkin@linux.intel.com>

[ Upstream commit 697d877849d4b34ab58d7078d6930bad0ef6fc66 ]

Commit:

313ccb9615948 ("perf: Allocate context task_ctx_data for child event")

makes the inherit path skip over the current event in case of task_ctx_data
allocation failure. This, however, is inconsistent with allocation failures
in perf_event_alloc(), which would abort the fork.

Correct this by returning an error code on task_ctx_data allocation
failure and failing the fork in that case.
