    No, CONFIG_HAVE_FENTRY just means fentry is supported, it does not mean
    that it is being used. It only gets used if CC_USING_FENTRY is set,
    which is set by the Makefile at time of compile.

    If CONFIG_HAVE_FENTRY is defined, a test is done to see if the gcc
    compiling the kernel supports -mfentry. If it does, then it defines the
    CC_USING_FENTRY macro, if not, the macro is not defined and the old way
    is performed.

    If the old way is performed, even if CONFIG_HAVE_FENTRY is defined, then
    we still need the above test. We can not have CONFIG_HAVE_FENTRY
