[PATCH v2] tracing/kprobes: fix NULL pointer dereference in trace_kprobe_create()




It is possible to trigger a NULL pointer dereference by writing an
incorrectly formatted string to krpobe_events (trying to create a
kretprobe omitting the symbol).

Example:

 echo "r:event_1 " >> /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/kprobe_events

That triggers this:

Fix by doing the proper argument checks in trace_kprobe_create().
