Subjectperf: perf_fuzzer crashes on Pentium 4 systems

so moving this to its own thread.

There was a two-part question asked.
1. Can the perf-fuzzer crash a Pentium 4 system
2. Does anyone care anymore?

The answer to #1 turns out to be "yes"
I'm not sure about #2 (but it's telling my p4 test system hadn't been
turned on in over 3 years).

In any case the perf_fuzzer can crash my p4 system within an hour or so.
The debugging from this isn't great, I forget what the preferred debug
things to enable in the kernel hacking menu are.

Here is one crash that just happened:

The instruction at RIP is unhelpfully
./arch/x86/include/asm/processor.h:400
which is
DECLARE_PER_CPU_FIRST(union irq_stack_union, irq_stack_union) __visible;

Though looking at the assembly it looks like
p4_pmu_enable_event() is called with NULL as the paramater.
