    tracing: Fix event format export

    For some reason the export of the event print format to userspace
    uses '#fmt' which breaks if the format string is anything but a plain
    string, for example if it is built with macros then the macro names
    are exported instead of their contents.

    "\"%s\"", fmt
    instead of
    "%s", #fmt
    to export the string and not the way it is built.

    For example, in net/mac80211/driver-trace.h for the trace event drv_start
    there is:


    Which use to produce:

    print fmt: LOCAL_PR_FMT, REC->wiphy_name

    Now produces:

    print fmt: "%s", REC->wiphy_name
