OK.

I'm having a bit of trouble with paravirt-trace.h when I actually
include it in paravirt.h. asm/paravirt.h is itself included in lots of
places, and so its fairly easy to end up with cyclic include
dependencies which are fairly painful. In this case I'm seeing
asm/paravirt.h -> linux/tracepoint.h -> linux/rcupate.h -> {lots of
stuff}, which gives errors like:

CC arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets.s

I'm wondering if there's much downside in making the code __DO_TRACE()
out of line so that we can make tracepoint.h have absolutely minimal
include dependencies?
