Subject[PATCH 1/6] ftrace: Remove incorrect setting of glob search field
From: "Steven Rostedt (VMware)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

__unregister_ftrace_function_probe() will incorrectly parse the glob filter
because it resets the search variable that was setup by filter_parse_regex().

Al Viro reported this:

After that call of filter_parse_regex() we could have func_g.search not
equal to glob only if glob started with '!' or '*'. In the former case
we would've buggered off with -EINVAL (not = 1). In the latter we
would've set func_g.search equal to glob + 1, calculated the length of
that thing in func_g.len and proceeded to reset func_g.search back to
glob.

Suppose the glob is e.g. *foo*. We end up with
func_g.type = MATCH_MIDDLE_ONLY;
func_g.len = 3;
func_g.search = "*foo";
Feeding that to ftrace_match_record() will not do anything sane - we
will be looking for names containing "*foo" (->len is ignored for that
one).
