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

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

From: "zhangwei(Jovi)" <jovi.zhangwei@huawei.com>

commit fa44063f9ef163c3a4c8d8c0465bb8a056b42035 upstream.

When wrong argument is passed into uprobe_events it does not return
an error:

[root@jovi tracing]# echo 'p:myprobe /bin/bash' > uprobe_events
[root@jovi tracing]#

The proper response is:

[root@jovi tracing]# echo 'p:myprobe /bin/bash' > uprobe_events
-bash: echo: write error: Invalid argument
