tracing: Add trace_array_get/put() to event handling

Commit a695cb58

 "tracing: Prevent deleting instances when they are being read"
tried to fix a race between deleting a trace instance and reading contents
of a trace file. But it wasn't good enough. The following could crash the kernel:

 # cd /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/instances
 # ( while :; do mkdir foo; rmdir foo; done ) &
 # ( while :; do echo 1 > foo/events/sched/sched_switch 2> /dev/null; done ) &

Luckily this can only be done by root user, but it should be fixed regardless.

The problem is that a delete of the file can happen after the write to the event
is opened, but before the enabling happens.

The solution is to make sure the trace_array is available before succeeding in
opening for write, and incerment the ref counter while opened.

Now the instance can be deleted when the events are writing to the buffer,
but the deletion of the instance will disable all events before the instance
is actually deleted.
