perf_events: Fix races and clean up perf_event and perf_mmap_data interaction

In order to move toward separate buffer objects, rework the whole
perf_mmap_data construct to be a more self-sufficient entity, one
with its own lifetime rules.

This greatly sanitizes the whole output redirection code, which
was riddled with bugs and races.
