tracing: Fix regression of trace_options file setting
The latest change to allow trace options to be set on the command line also broke the trace_options file. The zeroing of the last byte of the option name that is echoed into the trace_option file was removed with the consolidation of some of the code. The compare between the option and what was written to the trace_options file fails because the string holding the data written doesn't terminate with a null character. A zero needs to be added to the end of the string copied from user space. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
