Subject[BUGFIX PATCH] perf/probe: Fix to clear tev->nargs in clear_probe_trace_event()
Since add_probe_trace_event() can reuse tf->tevs[i] after
calling clear_probe_trace_event(), this can make perf-probe
crash if the 1st attempt of probe event finding fails to find
an event argument, and the 2nd attempt fails to find probe point.

$ perf probe -D "task_pid_nr tsk"
Failed to find 'tsk' in this function.
Failed to get entry address of warn_bad_vsyscall
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Fixes: 092b1f0b5f9f ("perf probe: Clear probe_trace_event when add_probe_trace_event() fails")
