perf, x86: Fix hw_perf_enable() event assignment

What happens is that we schedule badly like:

<...>-1987  [019]   280.252808: x86_pmu_start: event-46/1300c0: idx: 0
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252811: x86_pmu_start: event-47/1300c0: idx: 1
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252812: x86_pmu_start: event-48/1300c0: idx: 2
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252813: x86_pmu_start: event-49/1300c0: idx: 3
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252814: x86_pmu_start: event-50/1300c0: idx: 32
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252825: x86_pmu_stop: event-46/1300c0: idx: 0
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252826: x86_pmu_stop: event-47/1300c0: idx: 1
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252827: x86_pmu_stop: event-48/1300c0: idx: 2
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252828: x86_pmu_stop: event-49/1300c0: idx: 3
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252829: x86_pmu_stop: event-50/1300c0: idx: 32
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252834: x86_pmu_start: event-47/1300c0: idx: 1
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252834: x86_pmu_start: event-48/1300c0: idx: 2
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252835: x86_pmu_start: event-49/1300c0: idx: 3
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252836: x86_pmu_start: event-50/1300c0: idx: 32
<...>-1987  [019]   280.252837: x86_pmu_start: event-51/1300c0: idx: 32 *FAIL*

This happens because we only iterate the n_running events in the first
pass, and reset their index to -1 if they don't match to force a
re-assignment.

Now, in our RR example, n_running == 0 because we fully unscheduled, so
event-50 will retain its idx==32, even though in scheduling it will have
gotten idx=0, and we don't trigger the re-assign path.

The easiest way to fix this is the below patch, which simply validates
the full assignment in the second pass.
