[RFC PATCH v2 6/7] tracing: Use tracing error_log with probe events




Use tracing error_log with probe events for logging error more
precisely. This also makes all parse error returns -EINVAL
(except for -ENOMEM), because user can see better error message
in error_log file now.

Signed-off-by: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@xxxxxxxxxx>
---
 Changes in v2:
  - Update error message according to Steve's comment
  - Add uprobe reference counter errors
  - Adjust some error positions
