Subject: [PATCH] samples: bpf: fix: change the buffer size for read()

If the trace for read is larger than 4096,
the return value sz will be 4096.
This results in off-by-one error on buf.

    static char buf[4096];
    ssize_t sz;

    sz = read(trace_fd, buf, sizeof(buf));
    if (sz > 0) {
        buf[sz] = 0;
        puts(buf);
    }
