OK. I'll change it.

Got them. I noticed that I forgot to turn on CONFIG_DYNAMIC_FTRACE when
I did the original swap from name to _name to find the sites to update.

I did test more recently with a config that has all the FTRACE and PERF
features enabled, but that was after I swapped back from _name to name,
so I did not catch those two sites.

I just swapped the field name to _name again, and did the build with
all FTRACE and PERF config options enabled to be certain I did not miss
any. Just to be extra sure, I'm doing a make allyesconfig too.

Then, I'm changing _name back to name, and I'll prepare this as v11.
Is that OK with you ?

Thanks,

Mathieu
