With the next (8/8) patch, all die()s are removed at least from
probe-{event,finder}.c, except for all x*() wrappers.

Sure, this die() is removed by next (8/8) patch. Sorry, I've split it because
of easy to review...

Hmm, I think that will cost high, because only failing to allocate memory,
which theoretically means we can't continue to operate it. In that case,
we'd better just use backtrace() and die().
