Subject[GIT PULL] tracing/kprobes: Fix NULL pointer dereference in trace_kprobe_create()

Linus,

Andrea Righi fixed a NULL pointer dereference in trace_kprobe_create()

It is possible to trigger a NULL pointer dereference by writing an
incorrectly formatted string to the krpobe_events file.

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().
