Subject[PATCH 1/7] tracing: Allow to disable cmdline recording
From: Li Zefan <lizf@cn.fujitsu.com>

We found that even enabling a single trace event that will rarely be
triggered can add big overhead to context switch.

(lmbench context switch test)
-------------------------------------------------
2p/0K 2p/16K 2p/64K 8p/16K 8p/64K 16p/16K 16p/64K
ctxsw ctxsw ctxsw ctxsw ctxsw ctxsw ctxsw
------ ------ ------ ------ ------ ------- -------
2.19 2.3 2.21 2.56 2.13 2.54 2.07
2.39 2.51 2.35 2.75 2.27 2.81 2.24
The overhead is 6% ~ 11%.

It's because when a trace event is enabled 3 tracepoints (sched_switch,
sched_wakeup, sched_wakeup_new) will be activated to map pid to cmdname.

We'd like to avoid this overhead, so add a trace option '(no)record-cmd'
to allow to disable cmdline recording.
