I've also seen this warning but on another event.
I don't think this is related to this patchset but
more about the tracing recursion detection.

For exemple, here we are in an Irq event, which doesn't
use the __string() thing. For such off-case, the only change
is a variable declaration and a + 0 operation.

Another thing: I've only seen it in a selftest.

I will investigate.
Thanks.

Frederic.
