SubjectRe: [GIT PULL] tracing: Fix double free bug

Honestly, this seems horribly ugly.

The problem seems to be that the "goto error" cases are simply just wrong.

Why isn't the fix to make the error cases be the right ones, instead
of having one odd error case that then has to do some magic things to
not free the wrong things?

The patch ends up a bit bigger, mainly because I renamed the different
"free" cases, and because I made the non-freeing ones just return the
error directly.

Something like this (UNTESTED!) patch, IOW?
