powerpc/perf_event: Fix oops due to perf_event_do_pending call



Anton Blanchard found that large POWER systems would occasionally
crash in the exception exit path when profiling with perf_events.
The symptom was that an interrupt would occur late in the exit path
when the MSR[RI] (recoverable interrupt) bit was clear.  Interrupts
should be hard-disabled at this point but they were enabled.  Because
the interrupt was not recoverable the system panicked.

The reason is that the exception exit path was calling
perf_event_do_pending after hard-disabling interrupts, and
perf_event_do_pending will re-enable interrupts.

The simplest and cleanest fix for this is to use the same mechanism
that 32-bit powerpc does, namely to cause a self-IPI by setting the
decrementer to 1.  This means we can remove the tests in the exception
exit path and raw_local_irq_restore.

This also makes sure that the call to perf_event_do_pending from
timer_interrupt() happens within irq_enter/irq_exit.  (Note that
calling perf_event_do_pending from timer_interrupt does not mean that
there is a possible 1/HZ latency; setting the decrementer to 1 ensures
that the timer interrupt will happen immediately, i.e. within one
timebase tick, which is a few nanoseconds or 10s of nanoseconds.)
