Subject[PATCH 4/6] ftrace: Fix function_graph for archs that test ftrace_trace_function
From: Rajesh Bhagat <rajesh.lnx@gmail.com>

When CONFIG_DYNAMIC_FTRACE is not set, some archs (ARM) test
the variable function_trace_function to determine if it should
call the function tracer. If it is not set to ftrace_stub, then
it will call the function and return, and not call the function
graph tracer.

But some of these archs (ARM) do not have the assembly code
to test if function tracing is enabled or not (quick stop of tracing)
and it calls the helper routine ftrace_test_stop_func() instead.

If function tracer is enabled and then disabled, the variable
ftrace_trace_function is still set to the helper routine
ftrace_test_stop_func(), and not to ftrace_stub. This will
prevent the function graph tracer from ever running.

Output before patch
/debug/tracing # echo function > current_tracer
/debug/tracing # echo function_graph > current_tracer
/debug/tracing # cat trace
Output after patch
/debug/tracing # echo function > current_tracer
/debug/tracing # echo function_graph > current_tracer
/debug/tracing # cat trace
