[PATCH RT 2/5] tracing: Add field parsing hist error for hist triggers




4.14.40-rt31-rc1 stable review patch.
If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

From: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ commit 5ec432d7bf9dd3b4a2b84f8974e3adb71f45fb1d ]

If the user specifies a nonexistent field for a hist trigger, the
current code correctly flags that as an error, but doesn't tell the
user what happened.

Fix this by invoking hist_err() with an appropriate message when
nonexistent fields are specified.

Before:

  # echo 'hist:keys=pid:ts0=common_timestamp.usecs' >> /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_switch/trigger
  -su: echo: write error: Invalid argument
  # cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_switch/hist

After:

  # echo 'hist:keys=pid:ts0=common_timestamp.usecs' >> /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_switch/trigger
  -su: echo: write error: Invalid argument
  # cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_switch/hist
  ERROR: Couldn't find field: pid
    Last command: keys=pid:ts0=common_timestamp.usecs
