Subject[PATCH] tracing - enable records during the module load
Date
I was debuging some module using "function" and "function_graph" tracers
and noticed, that if you load module after you enabled tracing, the module's
hooks will convert only to NOP instructions.

The attached patch enables modules' hooks if there's function
trace allready on, thus allowing to trace module functions.

wbr,
jirka
