Subject: [PATCH 3/3] tracing: Add field modifier parsing hist error for hist triggers

If the user specifies an invalid field modifier for a hist trigger,
the current code correctly flags that as an error, but doesn't tell
the user what happened.

Fix this by invoking hist_err() with an appropriate message when
invalid modifiers are specified.

Before:

  # echo 'hist:keys=pid:ts0=common_timestamp.junkusecs' >> /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_wakeup/trigger
  -su: echo: write error: Invalid argument
  # cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_wakeup/hist

After:

  # echo 'hist:keys=pid:ts0=common_timestamp.junkusecs' >> /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_wakeup/trigger
  -su: echo: write error: Invalid argument
  # cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_wakeup/hist
  ERROR: Invalid field modifier: junkusecs
    Last command: keys=pid:ts0=common_timestamp.junkusecs
