Subject[PATCH 01/13] jump label v9: notifier atomic call chain notrace
From: Mathieu Desnoyers <mathieu.desnoyers@polymtl.ca>

In LTTng, being able to use the atomic notifier from cpu idle entry to
ensure the tracer flush the last events in the current subbuffer
requires the rcu read-side to be marked "notrace", otherwise it can end
up calling back into lockdep and the tracer.

Also apply to the the die notifier.
