Subject[PATCH v2 1/1] ftrace: do not update max buffer with no users
Impact: only use max latency buffer when a user is configured

Pekka reported a bug with the resizing of the buffers when only the
MMIO tracer was configured. The issue was, to save memory, the max
latency trace buffer was only initialized if a tracer that uses it
is configured in.

What happened was that the max latency buffer was never initialized
when only the MMIO tracer was configurued. The MMIO tracer does not
use the max tracer, which kept it from being initialized. But the
resize code still tried to resize the max latency buffers, but because
they were never allocated, the resize code was passed a NULL pointer.

This patch checks if the max tracer is NULL before resizing it.
It also hides the modification functions of the max tracer behind
the TRACER_MAX_TRACE config.
