Subject[007/146] ftrace: Only update the function code on write to filter files
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com>

commit 058e297d34a404caaa5ed277de15698d8dc43000 upstream.

If function tracing is enabled, a read of the filter files will
cause the call to stop_machine to update the function trace sites.
It should only call stop_machine on write.
