Fix the memory leakage in debuginfo__find_trace_events() when the probe
point is not found in the debuginfo. If there is no probe point found in
the debuginfo, debuginfo__find_probes() will NOT return -ENOENT, but 0.
Thus the caller of debuginfo__find_probes() must check the tf.ntevs and
release the allocated memory for the array of struct probe_trace_event.

The current code releases the memory only if the debuginfo__find_probes()
hits an error but not checks tf.ntevs. In the result, the memory allocated
on *tevs are not released if tf.ntevs == 0.

This fixes the memory leakage by checking tf.ntevs == 0 in addition to
ret < 0.
