[PATCH 4.18 24/34] tracing: Fix synthetic event to accept unsigned modifier




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

------------------

From: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 282447ba6b00c64678ffdf964f44e5c8b1c68377 upstream.

Fix synthetic event to accept unsigned modifier for its field type
correctly.

Currently, synthetic_events interface returns error for "unsigned"
modifiers as below;

 # echo "myevent unsigned long var" >> synthetic_events
 sh: write error: Invalid argument

This is because argv_split() breaks "unsigned long" into "unsigned"
and "long", but parse_synth_field() doesn't expected it.

With this fix, synthetic_events can handle the "unsigned long"
correctly like as below;

 # echo "myevent unsigned long var" >> synthetic_events
 # cat synthetic_events
 myevent	unsigned long var
