Currently methods which want to iterate over trace events,
do so using the trace_event_count() and trace_event_id()
methods. This leaks the concept of a single ID enum to
the callers. There is an alternative trace_event_pattern()
method which can be used in an iteration context, but its
design is stateless, so is not easy to expand it in the
future.

This defines a formal iterator API will provide a future-
proof way of iterating over events.

The iterator is also able to apply a pattern match filter
to events, further removing the need for the pattern
