Subject[RFC 1/2] perf/core: Enable sched_task callbacks if PMU has it
If an event associated with a PMU which has a sched_task callback,
it should be called regardless of cpu/task context. For example,
a per-cpu event might enable large PEBS buffers so it needs to flush
the buffer whenever task scheduling happens.

The underlying PMU may or may not require this for the given event,
but it will be handled in the pmu::sched_task() callback anyway.
