[lttng-dev] Duplicate registration of tracepoint probes

I figured it out.  The duplicate __tracepoint__init_urcu_sym symbols
apparently aren't an issue.  The problem is that I had tracepoints in
a static library that was then linked into the main executable as well
as a dynamic library loaded by the executable.  (It wasn't obvious
because the relevant symbols in the dynamic library were not
exported.)  Anyway, mixing static and dynamic linking is a bad idea.
