[PATCH 4.4 039/114] perf/core: Dont leak event in the syscall error path




4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit 201c2f85bd0bc13b712d9c0b3d11251b182e06ae ]

In the error path, event_file not being NULL is used to determine
whether the event itself still needs to be free'd, so fix it up to
avoid leaking.
