Steps to reproduce problem:
  lttng create
  lttng enable-event -u -a
  lttng start
  lttng start
  lttng stop


  Session auto-20200106-134455 created.
  Traces will be output to /home/joraj/lttng-traces/auto-20200106-134455
  All UST events are enabled in channel channel0
  Tracing started for session auto-20200106-134455
  Warning: Tracing already started for session auto-20200106-134455
  Warning: Tracing already stopped for session auto-20200106-134455

The "warning" on the "lttng stop" command is invalid.

This was introduced by commit

1f4962443 Fix: sessiond: no rotation performed from null chunk to new chunk

For cases where the session is already active, simply skip all the way to
the end without passing via the error handling path.
