tracing/kprobes: Disable kprobe events by default after creation

Disable newly created kprobe events by default, not to disturb
another user using ftrace. "Disturb" means when someone is using
ftrace and another user tries to use perf-tools, (in near
future) if he defines new kprobe event via perf-tools, then new
events will mess up the frace buffer. Fix this to allow proper
and transparent kprobes events concurrent usage between ftrace
users and perf users.
