perf tools: Fix out-of-bound access to struct perf_session
If filename is NULL there is an out-of-bound access to struct perf_session if it would be used with perf_session__open(). Shouldn't actually happen in current implementation as filename is always !NULL. Fixing this by always null-terminating filename.
