Yes but I didn't want to use ftrace_printk() because it needs the "ip"
parameter. User messages doesn't need this. But I reuse a part of the
code of ftrace_printk and I splitted ftrace_printk() in two parts for
this purpose: __ftrace_printk() and trace_print().
I also reused the print_entry but with a new TRACE_MARK type to make
the difference when it is time to send the entry to the pipe because
user messages don't use ip.
