tracing/function-graph-tracer: drop the kernel_text_address check
When the function graph tracer picks a return address, it ensures this address is really a kernel text one by calling __kernel_text_address() Actually this path has never been taken.Its role was more likely to debug the tracer on the beginning of its development but this function is wasteful since it is called for every traced function. The fault check is already sufficient. Signed-off-by: Frederic Weisbecker <> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <>
