perf/core: Fix another perf,trace,cpuhp lock inversion

Lockdep noticed the following 3-way lockup race:

        perf_trace_init()
 #0       mutex_lock(&event_mutex)
          perf_trace_event_init()
            perf_trace_event_reg()
              tp_event->class->reg() := tracepoint_probe_register
 #1              mutex_lock(&tracepoints_mutex)
                  trace_point_add_func()
 #2                  static_key_enable()

 #2	do_cpu_up()
	  perf_event_init_cpu()
 #3	    mutex_lock(&pmus_lock)
 #4	    mutex_lock(&ctx->mutex)

	perf_ioctl()
 #4	  ctx = perf_event_ctx_lock()
	  _perf_iotcl()
	    ftrace_profile_set_filter()
 #0	      mutex_lock(&event_mutex)

Fudge it for now by noting that the tracepoint state does not depend
on the event <-> context relation. Ugly though :/
