Subject[PATCH 2/9] ftrace, ia64: explictly ignore a file in recordmcount.pl
From: Shaohua Li <shaohua.li@intel.com>

In IA64, a function pointer isn't a 'unsigned long' but a
'struct {unsigned long ip, unsigned long gp}'. MCOUNT_ADDR is determined
at link time not compile time, so explictly ignore kernel/trace/ftrace.o
in recordmcount.pl.
