ftrace: Remove incorrect setting of glob search field
__unregister_ftrace_function_probe() will incorrectly parse the glob filter because it resets the search variable that was setup by filter_parse_regex(). Al Viro reported this: After that call of filter_parse_regex() we could have func_g.search not equal to glob only if glob started with '!' or '*'. In the former case we would've buggered off with -EINVAL (not = 1). In the latter we would've set func_g.search equal to glob + 1, calculated the length of that thing in func_g.len and proceeded to reset func_g.search back to glob. Suppose the glob is e.g. *foo*. We end up with func_g.type = MATCH_MIDDLE_ONLY; func_g.len = 3; func_g.search = "*foo"; Feeding that to ftrace_match_record() will not do anything sane - we will be looking for names containing "*foo" (->len is ignored for that one).
