perf session: Invalidate last_match when removing threads from rb_tree
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Mon, 2 Aug 2010 21:59:28 +0000 (18:59 -0300)]
If we receive two PERF_RECORD_EXIT for the same thread, we can end up
reusing session->last_match and trying to remove the thread twice from
the rb_tree, causing a segfault, so invalidade last_match in
perf_session__remove_thread.

Receiving two PERF_RECORD_EXIT for the same thread is a bug, but its a
harmless one if we make the tool more robust, like this patch does.
