perf/core: Fix event_function_local()

This change “perf/core: Fix event_function_local()” in Linux kernel is authored by Peter Zijlstra <peterz [at] infradead.org> on Tue Aug 16 13:33:26 2016 +0200.

perf/core: Fix event_function_local()

Vincent reported triggering the WARN_ON_ONCE() in event_function_local().

While thinking through cases I noticed that by using event_function()
directly, we miss the inactive case usually handled by
event_function_call().

Therefore construct a blend of event_function_call() and
event_function() that handles the cases relevant to
event_function_local().
