Ah! I see the issue.

My test scripts automatically set or unset /proc/sys/kernel/ftrace_enabled

I believe I wanted that to be default off when dynamic ftrace was not
active. Currently, it really shouldn't matter, because there's a check to
make sure that ftrace has a registered function before calling it.

That was just my preference. But if you find it less confusing, then
having ftrace_enabled as default on even when dynamic ftrace is not
enabled, is fine with me.
