perf/tracing: Fix regression of perf losing kprobe events
With the addition of the code to shrink the kernel tracepoint infrastructure, we lost kprobes being traced by perf. The reason is that I tested if the "tp_event->class->perf_probe" existed before enabling it. This prevents "ftrace only" events (like the function trace events) from being enabled by perf. Unfortunately, kprobe events do not use perf_probe. This causes kprobes to be missed by perf. To fix this, we add the test to see if "tp_event->class->reg" exists as well as perf_probe. Normal trace events have only "perf_probe" but no "reg" function, and kprobes and syscalls have the "reg" but no "perf_probe". The ftrace unique events do not have either, so this is a valid test. If a kprobe or syscall is not to be probed by perf, the "reg" function is called anyway, and will return a failure and prevent perf from probing it.
