[Cocci] [PATCH 1/1] tools lib traceevent: Deletion of an unnecessary check before the function call "free_arg"

The free_arg() function tests whether its argument is NULL and then
returns immediately. Thus the test around the call is not needed.

This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.
