tracing: Fix error handling to ensure instances can always be removed
Alexander Z Lam [Thu, 11 Jul 2013 00:34:34 +0000 (17:34 -0700)]
commit 609e85a70bcd0eedf4ec60639dbcfb1ab011e054 upstream.

Remove debugfs directories for tracing instances during creation if an error
occurs causing the trace_array for that instance to not be added to
ftrace_trace_arrays. If the directory continues to exist after the error, it
cannot be removed because the respective trace_array is not in
ftrace_trace_arrays.
