[PATCH 4.19 090/101] x86/perf/amd: Remove need to check "running" bit in NMI handler

From: Lendacky, Thomas <Thomas.Lendacky@xxxxxxx>

commit 3966c3feca3fd10b2935caa0b4a08c7dd59469e5 upstream.

Spurious interrupt support was added to perf in the following commit, almost
a decade ago:

  63e6be6d98e1 ("perf, x86: Catch spurious interrupts after disabling counters")

The two previous patches (resolving the race condition when disabling a
PMC and NMI latency mitigation) allow for the removal of this older
spurious interrupt support.

Currently in x86_pmu_stop(), the bit for the PMC in the active_mask bitmap
is cleared before disabling the PMC, which sets up a race condition. This
race condition was mitigated by introducing the running bitmap. That race
condition can be eliminated by first disabling the PMC, waiting for PMC
reset on overflow and then clearing the bit for the PMC in the active_mask
bitmap. The NMI handler will not re-enable a disabled counter.

If x86_pmu_stop() is called from the perf NMI handler, the NMI latency
mitigation support will guard against any unhandled NMI messages.
