Subjecttip: Build failure with !CONFIG_TRACE - undefined reference to `trace_clock_global'

With tip (commit - 58e70a841b20d5d80aebdd8274ab60c0c933470f) I get a build
error when CONFIG_TRACE is not set.

arch/x86/kernel/built-in.o: In function `ds_switch_to':
(.text+0x86ee): undefined reference to `trace_clock_global'
arch/x86/kernel/built-in.o: In function `ds_switch_to':
(.text+0x8743): undefined reference to `trace_clock_global'
make[1]: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1
make: *** [sub-make] Error 2

Looks like it is coming from the change

x86, bts: use trace_clock_global() for timestamps

Below is a dumb patch that gets rid of the build error. Not sure whether
this is the right fix.
