Subject[patch 29/37] Markers - define non optimized marker
To support the forthcoming "immediate values" marker optimization, we must have
a way to declare markers in few code paths that does not use instruction
modification based enable. This will be the case of printk(), some traps and
eventually lockdep instrumentation.

Changelog :
- Fix reversed boolean logic of "generic".
