undefined method `flat_map' for nil:NilClass when conditional on an output

Description

Using the following config + the latest code as of 9/19/14, this error is thrown when the output receives an event:

(eval):22:in `block in initialize': undefined method `flat_map' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)
from /media/truecrypt1/git/danielredoak/logstash/lib/logstash/pipeline.rb:272:in `call'

Looks like its related to the events local var not being set initially for the output_func in the compiled config.

Perhaps the fix is to change this line to include "output" as well (or remove the conditional around it) but I don't have the experience with this code to really know for sure at this point. https://github.com/elasticsearch/logstash/blob/master/lib/logstash/config/config_ast.rb#L77-L79
