tracing: Do not reference char * as a string in histograms

The histogram logic was allowing events with char * pointers to be used as
normal strings. But it was easy to crash the kernel with:

 # echo 'hist:keys=filename' > events/syscalls/sys_enter_openat/trigger

And open some files, and boom!

Where it triggered a fault on strlen(key) where key was the filename.

The reason is that filename is a char * to user space, and the histogram
code just blindly dereferenced it, with obvious bad results.

I originally tried to use strncpy_from_user/kernel_nofault() but found
that there's other places that its dereferenced and not worth the effort.

Just do not allow "char *" to act like strings.
