Subject: [PATCH 1/5] perf-probe: Add warning message if there is unexpected event name

This improve the error message so that user can know
event-name error before writing new events to
kprobe-events interface.

E.g.
   ======
   #./perf probe -x /lib64/libc-2.25.so malloc_get_state*
   Internal error: "malloc_get_state@...BC_2" is wrong event name.
     Error: Failed to add events.
   ======
