Subject: [PATCH v2] perf/core: use strndup_user() instead of buggy open-coded version

The first version of this method was missing the check for
`ret == PATH_MAX`; then such a check was added, but it didn't call kfree()
on error, so there was still a small memory leak in the error case.
Fix it by using strndup_user() instead of open-coding it.

Fixes: 0eadcc7a7bc0 ("perf/core: Fix perf_uprobe_init()")
Signed-off-by: Jann Horn <jannh@...gle.com>

v2:
 - be compatible with existing error codes (Masami Hiramatsu)
