As per the above, its implemented and correct. The answer is 0.
The only problem is that currently it assumes all tracepoint events are
from the kernel, and that is wrong for uprobes.
But returning an error is not right, its a valid configuration, a daft
one, sure, but not invalid.
Similarly uprobe:foo:k is daft, but broken.
