[Cocci] [PATCH v2 2/2] kernel-trace: Less calls for iput() in create_trace_uprobe() after error detection

From: Markus Elfring <elfring at users.sourceforge.net>

The iput() function was called in three cases by the create_trace_uprobe()
function during error handling even if the passed variable contained still
a null pointer. This implementation detail could be improved by the
introduction of another jump label.
