Subject[PATCH 02/20] Tracepoint: Dissociate from module mutex
From: Mathieu Desnoyers <mathieu.desnoyers@efficios.com>

Copy the information needed from struct module into a local module list
held within tracepoint.c from within the module coming/going notifier.

This vastly simplifies locking of tracepoint registration /
unregistration, because we don't have to take the module mutex to
register and unregister tracepoints anymore. Steven Rostedt ran into
dependency problems related to modules mutex vs kprobes mutex vs ftrace
mutex vs tracepoint mutex that seems to be hard to fix without removing
this dependency between tracepoint and module mutex. (note: it should be
investigated whether kprobes could benefit of being dissociated from the
modules mutex too.)

This also fixes module handling of tracepoint list iterators, because it
was expecting the list to be sorted by pointer address. Given we have
control on our own list now, it's OK to sort this list which has
tracepoints as its only purpose. The reason why this sorting is required
is to handle the fact that seq files (and any read() operation from
user-space) cannot hold the tracepoint mutex across multiple calls, so
list entries may vanish between calls. With sorting, the tracepoint
iterator becomes usable even if the list don't contain the exact item
pointed to by the iterator anymore.
