Hmm, OK, it is ftrace's behavior.

Ah, I confused that the sched_switch and sched_wakeup...

Can you print out the error with which event we should see? e.g.

  ERROR: Variable already defined at sched_wakeup: ts0

And this shows the good reason why we should reject removing
unexist trigger (with -ENOENT). If I find I can not remove
'hist:keys=pid:ts0=...' from sched_switch, it helps me to
notice my mistake.

OK, anyway this works good to me too.
