Subject[PATCH 01/10] tracing/syscalls: Dont add events for unmapped syscalls
From: Ian Munsie <imunsie@au1.ibm.com>

FTRACE_SYSCALLS would create events for each and every system call, even
if it had failed to map the system call's name with it's number. This
resulted in a number of events being created that would not behave as
expected.

This could happen, for example, on architectures who's symbol names are
unusual and will not match the system call name. It could also happen
with system calls which were mapped to sys_ni_syscall.

This patch changes the default system call number in the metadata to -1.
If the system call name from the metadata is not successfully mapped to
a system call number during boot, than the event initialisation routine
will now return an error, preventing the event from being created.
