Nice, just some comments below.

You duplicate the DECLARE_TRACE from above and place it into an
unprotected area. Why not move it instead of duplicating it. This is
just a bug waiting to happen if we ever need to modify DECLARE_TRACE.

If you change it to:

#if !defined(CONFIG_TRACEPOINTS) && !defined(DECLARE_TRACE)

#define DECLARE_TRACE(...) ....

#endif

Then you can remove the first definition of it. The first time
processing the file, when it hits the #ifndef DECLARE_TRACE in the
_LINUX_TRACEPOINT_H conditional, it still does not define DECLARE_TRACE,
and then when it exits that conditional, it does.
