Subject[PATCH] tracing/kprobes: fix probe parsing
From: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com>

Trying to add a probe like

echo p:myprobe 0x10000 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/kprobe_events

will fail since the wrong pointer is passed to strict_strtoul
when trying to convert the address to an unsigned long.
