perf: Fix task context scheduling

Jiri reported:

 |
 | - once an event is created by sys_perf_event_open, task context
 |   is created and it stays even if the event is closed, until the
 |   task is finished ... thats what I see in code and I assume it's
 |   correct
 |
 | - when the task opens event, perf_sched_events jump label is
 |   incremented and following callbacks are started from scheduler
 |
 |         __perf_event_task_sched_in
 |         __perf_event_task_sched_out
 |
 |   These callback *in/out set/unset cpuctx->task_ctx value to the
 |   task context.
 |
 | - close is called on event on CPU 0:
 |         - the task is scheduled on CPU 0
 |         - __perf_event_task_sched_in is called
 |         - cpuctx->task_ctx is set
 |         - perf_sched_events jump label is decremented and == 0
 |         - __perf_event_task_sched_out is not called
 |         - cpuctx->task_ctx on CPU 0 stays set
 |
 | - exit is called on CPU 1:
 |         - the task is scheduled on CPU 1
 |         - perf_event_exit_task is called
 |         - task_ctx_sched_out unsets cpuctx->task_ctx on CPU 1
 |         - put_ctx destroys the context
 |
 | - another call of perf_rotate_context on CPU 0 will use invalid
 |   task_ctx pointer, and eventualy panic.
 |

Cure this the simplest possibly way by partially reverting the
jump_label optimization for the sched_out case.
