Subject: [PATCH 5.0 058/238] tracing/perf: Use strndup_user() instead of buggy open-coded version

5.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jann Horn <jannh@...gle.com>

commit 83540fbc8812a580b6ad8f93f4c29e62e417687e upstream.

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.
