Sorry I don't express clearly enough. The patch [v2 9/9] in this patch
seris can work well. The bogus one is in myself reply for patch [v2 0/9].
In this patch series I keep trace interface always builtin, so it can
work for module & builtin, whether CREATE_TRACE_POINTS is defined
multi-times or not.

The weird thing for bogus patch is if it is compiled as a module, I can
find the trace_xxx function is called definitely and paramerters are
expected but nothing output via trace interface, just like below:

# tracer: nop
#
# entries-in-buffer/entries-written: 0/0 #P:120
#
# _-----=> irqs-off
# / _----=> need-resched
# | / _---=> hardirq/softirq
# || / _--=> preempt-depth
# ||| / delay
# TASK-PID CPU# |||| TIMESTAMP FUNCTION
# | | | |||| | |


I highly suspect my trace_xxx function is compiled as an empty function
if following my bogus patch.

In current kernel we haven't arch/x86/ras/ras.c. You mean I create
a new one there and just add some trace macro definition?
