    Fix: meaningful error message
    Show a meaningful error message to users attempting to do kernel tracing
    without root sessiond/tracing group creds.

compudj at thinkos:~$ lttng enable-event -k -a
Error: A root sessiond needs to be running, and user part of the "tracing" group, to activate kernel tracing

   The English of the message could be improved.  How about this?

Error: Tracing the kernel requires a root sessiond daemon and user membership in the "tracing" group
