Because kprobes uses dynamically allocated strings as names.
That said, I should turn it back to const, it's indeed more sane.
I don't remember exactly the reason of this. I had to resolve several
conflicts between Masami's patchset and tracing/core, but I did
wrong in this part, indeed.

Ok, I'll send a delta patch to fix these.

Thanks.
