tracing/filters: strloc should be unsigned short

I forgot to update filter code accordingly in
"tracing/events: change the type of __str_loc_item to unsigned short"
(commt b0aae68cc5508f3c2fbf728988c954db4c8b8a53)

It can cause system crash:

# echo 1 > tracing/events/irq/irq_handler_entry/enable
# echo 'name == eth0' > tracing/events/irq/irq_handler_entry/filter
[ Impact: fix crash while filtering on __string() field ]
