tracing: Use rcu_dereference_sched() for trace event triggers

As trace event triggers are now part of the mainline kernel, I added
my trace event trigger tests to my test suite I run on all my kernels.
Now these tests get run under different config options, and one of
those options is CONFIG_PROVE_RCU, which checks under lockdep that
the rcu locking primitives are being used correctly. This triggered
the following splat:

===============================
[ INFO: suspicious RCU usage. ]
3.15.0-rc2-test+ #11 Not tainted
-------------------------------
kernel/trace/trace_events_trigger.c:80 suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage!

other info that might help us debug this:

rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 0

The cause is that the triggers are protected by rcu_read_lock_sched() but
the data is dereferenced with rcu_dereference() which expects it to
be protected with rcu_read_lock(). The proper reference should be
rcu_dereference_sched().
