No, it was intentionally not added in between because architectures could
set a backtrace op even if they had no actual counter information to plug
in. oprofile_timer_init() is pretty careful to clear out all of the
unused fields manually, while leaving the backtrace setting untouched.

sh, ia64, and s390 all depend on this behaviour.
