    I updated the branch by adding the below patch that fixes the bug. You
    can apply this and then run your tests again.

    tracing: Fix compile error when static ftrace is enabled

    The stack tracer uses the call ftrace_set_early_filter() function
    to allow the stack tracer to pick its own functions on boot.
    But this function is not defined if dynamic ftrace is not set.
    This causes a compiler error when stack tracer is enabled and
    dynamic ftrace is not.
