Subject[PATCH 4.14 13/43] tracepoint: Do not warn on ENOMEM
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Mathieu Desnoyers <mathieu.desnoyers@efficios.com>

commit d66a270be3310d7aa132fec0cea77d3d32a0ff75 upstream.

Tracepoint should only warn when a kernel API user does not respect the
required preconditions (e.g. same tracepoint enabled twice, or called
to remove a tracepoint that does not exist).

Silence warning in out-of-memory conditions, given that the error is
returned to the caller.

This ensures that out-of-memory error-injection testing does not trigger
warnings in tracepoint.c, which were seen by syzbot.
