Subject: [PATCH 1/5] tracing/events: don't increment @pos in s_start()

While testing syscall tracepoints posted by Jason, I found 3 entries
were missing when reading available_events. The output size of
available_events is < 4 pages, which means we lost 1 item per page.

The cause is, it's wrong to increment @pos in s_start().

Actually there's another bug here -- reading avaiable_events/set_events
can race with module unload:

  # cat available_events               |
      s_start()                        |
      s_stop()                         |
                                       | # rmmod foo.ko
      s_start()                        |
        call = list_entry(m->private)  |

@call might be freed and accessing it will lead to crash.

[ Impact fix missing entries when reading available_events/set_events ]
