Description

When debugging the problem described in #1326, I tried setting LTTNG_UST_DEBUG, but didn't see a mention of something going wrong. We should look into what we do when dlopen'ing lttng-ust libraries fails, such as here:

https://github.com/lttng/lttng-ust/blob/81b2d23800224648edd5850dd43b78d00b668a5e/include/lttng/tracepoint.h#L404-L408

Currently, we silently fail. All the user sees is that tracing doesn't work, and it's quite difficult to know why.
