Actually, this shouldn't be true anymore. I know you copied the comment,
but with the new pointer settings, there should be no blanks. We
probably should turn this into a WARN_ON().

Anyway, this code is duplicated now here and in
__trace_add_event_call(). A helper function should be created to store
this in both locations.

This changes how events are currently. If we fail to create the
directory, we still keep the event. This can become confusing as events
and the directories will not match anymore. A failure should be checked
for, and if it happens, the event should be removed.
