tracing/function-graph-tracer: use the more lightweight local clock

Impact: decrease hangs risks with the graph tracer on slow systems

Since the function graph tracer can spend too much time on timer
interrupts, it's better now to use the more lightweight local
clock. Anyway, the function graph traces are more reliable on a
per cpu trace.
