tracing: Fix check for trace_percpu_buffer validity in get_trace_buf()
With the new osnoise tracer, we are seeing the below splat: Kernel attempted to read user page (c7d880000) - exploit attempt?

The problem though is that the check for a valid trace_percpu_buffer is incorrect in get_trace_buf(). The check is being done after calculating the pointer for the current cpu, rather than on the main percpu pointer. Fix the check to be against trace_percpu_buffer.
