tracing/samples: Fix creation and deletion of simple_thread_fn creation
Commit 7496946a8 ("tracing: Add samples of DECLARE_EVENT_CLASS() and DEFINE_EVENT()") added template examples for all the events. It created a DEFINE_EVENT_FN() example which reused the foo_bar_reg and foo_bar_unreg functions. Enabling both the TRACE_EVENT_FN() and DEFINE_EVENT_FN() example trace events caused the foo_bar_reg to be called twice, creating the test thread twice. The foo_bar_unreg would remove it only once, even if it was called multiple times, leaving a thread existing when the module is unloaded, causing an oops. Add a ref count and allow foo_bar_reg() and foo_bar_unreg() be called by multiple trace events.
