perf_counter/powerpc: Fix oops on cpus without perf_counter hardware support
Paul Mackerras [Fri, 7 Aug 2009 06:59:45 +0000 (16:59 +1000)]
If we have the powerpc perf_counter backend compiled in, but
the cpu we are running on is one where we don't support the
PMU, we currently oops in hw_perf_group_sched_in if we try to
use any counters, because ppmu is NULL in that case, and we
unconditionally dereference ppmu.

This fixes the problem by adding a check if ppmu is NULL at the
beginning of hw_perf_group_sched_in, and also at the beginning
of the other functions that get called from the perf_counter
core, i.e. hw_perf_disable, hw_perf_enable, and
hw_perf_counter_setup.
