commit b0215e2d6a18d8331b2d4a8b38ccf3eff783edb1 upstream.

If the re-allocation of tep->cmdlines succeeds, then the previous
allocation of tep->cmdlines will be freed. If we later fail in
add_new_comm(), we must not free cmdlines, and also should assign
tep->cmdlines to the new allocation. Otherwise when freeing tep, the
tep->cmdlines will be pointing to garbage.

Fixes: a6d2a61ac653a ("tools lib traceevent: Remove some die() calls")
