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

Lockdep gifted us with noticing the following 4-way lockup scenario:

        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_event_task_disable()
          mutex_lock(&current->perf_event_mutex)
 #4       ctx = perf_event_ctx_lock()
 #5       perf_event_for_each_child()

        do_exit()
          task_work_run()
            __fput()
              perf_release()
                perf_event_release_kernel()
 #4               mutex_lock(&ctx->mutex)
 #5               mutex_lock(&event->child_mutex)
                  free_event()
                    _free_event()
                      event->destroy() := perf_trace_destroy
 #0                     mutex_lock(&event_mutex);

Fix that by moving the free_event() out from under the locks.
