As trace-stack.c's read_proc() function is going to be used by trace-cmd stat,
we don't want it to make the program die in case something went wrong.
Therefore, this simple patch makes read_proc() to just return -1 in case the
proc file was empty or read() failed with an error, instead of using die().
