Subject[Patch 2/2] ksym_tracer:Handle machine stall when cat trace_pipe for ksym tracer
'trace_pipe' does not handle a TRACE_TYPE_PARTIAL_LINE well and causes the
machine to stall. While a TRACE_TYPE_UNHANDLED return causes the tracer to
output unrelated data, a TRACE_TYPE_HANDLED return presents a clean output
(minus all partial traces).
