Subject[RFA][PATCH 4/5] tracepoint: Do not waste memory on mods with no tracepoints
[ Note, this is marked stable as the next patch requires it ]

From: "Steven Rostedt (Red Hat)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

No reason to allocate tp_module structures for modules that have no
tracepoints. This just wastes memory.

Fixes: b75ef8b44b1c "Tracepoint: Dissociate from module mutex"
Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org # 3.2+
Acked-by: Mathieu Desnoyers <mathieu.desnoyers@efficios.com>
Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
