Subject[PATCH 1/7] tracing/events: don't increment @pos in s_start()
While testing syscall tracepoints posted by Jason, I found 3 entries
were missing when reading available_events. The output size of
available_events is < 4 pages, which means we lost 1 entry per page.

The cause is, it's wrong to increment @pos in s_start().

Actually there's another bug here -- reading avaiable_events/set_events
can race with module unload:

# cat available_events |
s_start() |
s_stop() |
| # rmmod foo.ko
s_start() |
call = list_entry(m->private) |
@call might be freed and accessing it will lead to crash.

[ Impact fix missing entries when reading available_events/set_events ]
