tracing: Fix a memory leak by early error exit in trace_pid_write()
In trace_pid_write(), the buffer for trace parser is allocated through kmalloc() in trace_parser_get_init(). Later on, after the buffer is used, it is then freed through kfree() in trace_parser_put(). However, it is possible that trace_pid_write() is terminated due to unexpected errors, e.g., ENOMEM. In that case, the allocated buffer will not be freed, which is a memory leak bug. To fix this issue, free the allocated buffer when an error is encountered.
