Subject[PATCH v2 2/3] tracing: Fix parse_synth_field() error handling
Date
synth_field_size() returns either a positive size or an error (zero or
a negative value). However, the existing code assumes the only error
value is 0. It doesn't handle negative error codes, as it assigns
directly to field->size (a size_t; unsigned), thereby interpreting the
error code as a valid size instead.

Do the test before assignment to field->size.
