Subject[PATCH 0/4] ftrace: Fix a few issues
This series fixes a kernel oops when an ftrace instance is deleted while
there are still active event triggers. Patch 2 provides details on how
to reproduce as well as the kernel oops message.

This issue was reported by Michael Ellerman as a crash seen when trying
to run the ftrace test suite. In looking into it, I noticed that the
issue actually showed up due to a few bashisms in the ftrace tests when
run on Ubuntu. Those bashisms meant that the ftrace instance was being
deleted without removing the event triggers. Patch 3 includes a fix for
the bashisms.

Patch 4 adds a test case to explicitly catch this issue going forward.
