It's strange that the {*}_off tracers have failed.

This one too. (sysprof doesn't count, it fails for some weeks, I think
it's not a hard deal to fix).

Still hanging in the timer interrupt.
I guess it makes the timer interrupt servicing too slow and then
once it is serviced, another one is raised.

But the cause is perhaps more complex

I think you have had too much hanging of this type.
I'm preparing a fix that checks periodically if the function graph
tracer is spending too much time in an interrupt.

I guess I could count the number of function executed between the irq entry
and its exit.

That's the best: if we are hanging in an interrupt, it could be whatever
interrupt and the jiffies could not be progressing so I can't rely
on time but only on number of functions executed.

May be 10000 calls is a good threshold before killing the function graph
inside an interrupt?

Let's try, I will also provide a way to dump the function graph traces from
the ring-buffer on the screen, it could help to debug it in this case.

Thanks,
Frederic.
