tracing/function-graph-tracer: introduce __notrace_funcgraph to filter special functions
Impact: trace more functions When the function graph tracer is configured, three more files are not traced to prevent only four functions to be traced. And this impacts the normal function tracer too. arch/x86/kernel/process_64/32.c: I had crashes when I let this file traced. After some debugging, I saw that the "current" task point was changed inside__swtich_to(), ie: "write_pda(pcurrent, next_p);" inside process_64.c Since the tracer store the original return address of the function inside current, we had crashes. Only __switch_to() has to be excluded from tracing. kernel/module.c and kernel/extable.c: Because of a function used internally by the function graph tracer: __kernel_text_address() To let the other functions inside these files to be traced, this patch introduces the __notrace_funcgraph function prefix which is __notrace if function graph tracer is configured and nothing if not.
