[PATCH 3.18 112/144] perf: Fix PERF_EVENT_IOC_PERIOD deadlock




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

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

[ Upstream commit 642c2d671ceff40e9453203ea0c66e991e11e249 ]

Dmitry reported a fairly silly recursive lock deadlock for
PERF_EVENT_IOC_PERIOD, fix this by explicitly doing the inactive part of
__perf_event_period() instead of calling that function.
