The above is the only one I would do. If tracing_thresh is non-zero when
the function_graph tracer is set, on the start up code in the function
tracer (graph_trace_init).

Just enable the option if trace_thresh is set. If you enable function
graph tracer and have the trace_thresh set, then this type of tracing
starts immediately. It also keeps the code nicely in the
trace_function_graph.c file, and does not need to touch the setting of
tracing_thresh.
