perf probe: Improve error message for unknown member of data structure
Improve the error message if we can not find given member in the given structure. Currently perf probe shows a wrong error message as below. ----- # perf probe getname_flags:65 "result->BOGUS" result(type:filename) has no member BOGUS. Failed to find 'result' in this function. Error: Failed to add events. (-22) ----- The first message is correct, but the second one is not, since we didn't fail to find a variable but fails to find the member of given variable. ----- # perf probe getname_flags:65 "result->BOGUS" result(type:filename) has no member BOGUS. Error: Failed to add events. (-22) ----- With this patch, the error message shows only the first one. And if we really failed to find given variable, it tells us so. ----- # perf probe getname_flags:65 "BOGUS" Failed to find 'BOGUS' in this function. Error: Failed to add events.
