perf probe: Fix to handle errors in line_range searching

As Namhyung reported(https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/4/1/89),
current perf-probe -L option doesn't handle errors in line-range
searching correctly. It causes a SEGV if an error occured in the
line-range searching.

  ----
  $ perf probe -x ./perf -v -L map__load
  Open Debuginfo file: /home/namhyung/project/linux/tools/perf/perf
  fname: util/map.c, lineno:153
  New line range: 153 to 2147483647
  path: (null)
  Segmentation fault (core dumped)
  ----

This is because line_range_inline_cb() ignores errors
from find_line_range_by_line() which means that lr->path is
already freed on the error path in find_line_range_by_line().
As a result, get_real_path() accesses the lr->path and it
causes a NULL pointer exception.

This fixes line_range_inline_cb() to handle the error correctly,
and report it to the caller.

Anyway, this just fixes a possible SEGV bug, Namhyung's patch
is also required.
