[RFC][PATCH 4/8] perf/x86: Remove PERF_X86_EVENT_COMMITTED




The flag PERF_X86_EVENT_COMMITTED is used to find uncommitted events
for which to call put_event_constraint() when scheduling fails.

These are the newly added events to the list, and must form, per
definition, the tail of cpuc->event_list[]. By computing the list
index of the last successfull schedule, then iteration can start there
and the flag is redundant.

There are only 3 callers of x86_schedule_events(), notably:

 - x86_pmu_add()
 - x86_pmu_commit_txn()
 - validate_group()

For x86_pmu_add(), cpuc->n_events isn't updated until after
schedule_events() succeeds, therefore cpuc->n_events points to the
desired index.

For x86_pmu_commit_txn(), cpuc->n_events is updated, but we can
trivially compute the desired value with cpuc->n_txn -- the number of
events added in this transaction.

For validate_group(), we can make the rule for x86_pmu_add() work by
simply setting cpuc->n_events to 0 before calling schedule_events().
