Subject[16/66] tracing/x86: Dont use mcount in pvclock.c
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Jeremy Fitzhardinge <jeremy@goop.org>

commit 9ecd4e1689208afe9b059a5ce1333acb2f42c4d2 upstream.

When using a paravirt clock, pvclock.c can be used by sched_clock(),
which in turn is used by the tracing mechanism for timestamps,
which leads to infinite recursion.

Disable mcount/tracing for pvclock.o.
