I started noticing this behaviour recently.

A simple
char buf[KSYM_FILTER_ENTRY_LEN * KSYM_TRACER_MAX] = "\0";
solves the problem.

The stack usage would be much lesser on other architectures with fewer
breakpoint registers (like PPC64), and should really be an issue.

Given that this change uses the tracer defined functions and a seq-file
implementation, the patch is welcome.
