Hi Naveen,

Here is the testcase which I meant above. This may help if there is any
regression related to this specific issue.

Thank you,

selftests: ftrace: Add a testcase for kprobe event naming

From: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@kernel.org>

Add a testcase for kprobe event naming. This testcase
checks whether the kprobe events can automatically ganerate
its event name on normal function and dot-suffixed function.
Also it checks whether the kprobe events can correctly
define new event with given event name and group name.
