[PATCH 5.16 0450/1017] powerpc/perf: Dont use perf_hw_context for trace IMC PMU

[ Upstream commit 0198322379c25215b2778482bf1221743a76e2b5 ]

Trace IMC (In-Memory collection counters) in powerpc is useful for
application level profiling.

For trace_imc, presently task context (task_ctx_nr) is set to
perf_hw_context. But perf_hw_context should only be used for CPU PMU.
See commit 26657848502b ("perf/core: Verify we have a single
perf_hw_context PMU").

So for trace_imc, even though it is per thread PMU, it is preferred to
use sw_context in order to be able to do application level monitoring.
Hence change the task_ctx_nr to use perf_sw_context.
