Subject: [PATCH v2] tools lib traceevent: Take care of return value of asprintf

From: He Zhe <zhe.he@...driver.com>

According to the API, if memory allocation wasn't possible, or some other
error occurs, asprintf will return -1, and the contents of strp below are
undefined.

int asprintf(char **strp, const char *fmt, ...);

This patch takes care of return value of asprintf to make it less error
prone and prevent the following build warning.

ignoring return value of ‘asprintf’, declared with attribute warn_unused_result [-Wunused-result]

Signed-off-by: He Zhe <zhe.he@...driver.com>

v2: directly check the return value without saving to a variable
