[PATCH v1 1/6] perf: Disable PMU around address filter adjustment




If the PMU is used for AUX data sampling, the hardware event that triggers
it may come in during a critical section of address filters adjustment (if
it's delivered as NMI) and in turn call the address filter sync code,
causing a spinlock recursion.

To prevent this, disable the PMU around these critical sections, so that
AUX sampling won't take place there.
