[PATCH perf/urgent] perf tools: Fix the code to strip command name




Recent commit broke command name strip in perf_event__get_comm_ids
function. It replaced left to right search for '\n' with rtrim,
which actually does right to left search. It occasionally caught
earlier '\n' and kept trash in the command name.

Keeping the ltrim, but moving back the left to right '\n' search
instead of the rtrim.

Fixes: bdd97ca63faa ("perf tools: Refactor the code to strip command name with {l,r}trim()")
