The checks for context_tracking_is_enabled() around the calls to
context_tracking_enter() and context_tracking_exit() (as opposed to
only within these functions) looked strange at first, but it avoids
a needless unconditional call in cases where the static_key disables
context tracking. (This is due to separate compilation.)

So...
