blktrace: remove debugfs entries on bad path



debugfs directory entries for devices are not removed on some
of the failure pathes in do_blk_trace_setup().
One way to reproduce is to start blktrace on multiple devices
with insufficient Vmalloc space: Devices will fail with
a message like this:

	BLKTRACESETUP(2) /dev/sdu failed: 5/Input/output error

If so, the respective entries in debugfs
(e.g. /sys/kernel/debug/block/sdu) will remain and subsequent
attempts to start blktrace on the respective devices will not
succeed due to existing directories.

[ Impact: fix /debug/tracing file cleanup corner case ]
