Subject[PATCH] perf probe: Fix to delete multiple probe event
Fix to delete multiple probe event with filter correctly.

When we put an event with multiple probes, perf-probe fails
to delete with filters. This comes from a failure to list
up the event name because of overwrapping its name.

To fix this issue, skip to list up the event which has
same name.

Without this patch:
# perf probe -l \*
probe_perf:map__map_ip (on perf_sample__fprintf_brstackoff:21@
probe_perf:map__map_ip (on perf_sample__fprintf_brstackoff:25@
probe_perf:map__map_ip (on append_inlines:12@util/machine.c in
probe_perf:map__map_ip (on unwind_entry:19@util/machine.c in /
probe_perf:map__map_ip (on map__map_ip@util/map.h in /home/mhi
probe_perf:map__map_ip (on map__map_ip@util/map.h in /home/mhi
# perf probe -d \*
"*" does not hit any event.
Error: Failed to delete events. Reason: No such file or directory (Code: -2)

With this:
# perf probe -d \*
Removed event: probe_perf:map__map_ip
