[PATCH 3.18 01/21] tracing: Fix crash when freeing instances with event triggers

3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Steven Rostedt (VMware) <rostedt@xxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 86b389ff22bd6ad8fd3cb98e41cd271886c6d023 upstream.

If a instance has an event trigger enabled when it is freed, it could cause
an access of free memory. Here's the case that crashes:

 # cd /sys/kernel/tracing
 # mkdir instances/foo
 # echo snapshot > instances/foo/events/initcall/initcall_start/trigger
 # rmdir instances/foo

Would produce:

 Call Trace:

This was due to the call the clears out the triggers when an instance is
being deleted not removing the trigger from the link list.
