Subject[PATCH v2 3/3] tracing: probeevent: Fix to make the type of $comm string
Date
Fix to make the type of $comm "string".
If we set the other type to $comm argument, it shows
meaningless value or wrong data. Currently probe events
allow us to set string array type (e.g. ":string[2]"), or
other digit types like x8 on $comm. But since clearly
$comm is just a string data, it should not be fetched
by other types including array.

Fixes: 35abb67de744 ("tracing: expose current->comm to [ku]probe events")
