SubjectRe: [PATCH 29/31] markers: Make static

Yes, I guess they should. But beware that when using trace_mark_tp()
helper within tracepoint probes, the probe functions should *not* be
made static. Making them static would make the compiler thing that
nobody is actually using them, which is false, because they are used
through the declaration made in the marker section. So we should be very
careful when turning probe functions to "static" that an external
reference to that function will be seen.

trace_mark_tp() is the only "weird" case I have seen so far.
