Subject[for-next][PATCH 05/16] tracing: Exclude generic fields from histograms
From: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@linux.intel.com>

There are a small number of 'generic fields' (comm/COMM/cpu/CPU) that
are found by trace_find_event_field() but are only meant for
filtering. Specifically, they unlike normal fields, they have a size
of 0 and thus wreak havoc when used as a histogram key.

Exclude these (return -EINVAL) when used as histogram keys.
