Looks to be something new (not in my tree).

/me checks out linux-next

Ah, since I added better recursion protection code in function tracer
this didn't break that. But unfortunately, function graph tracer
doesn't have that protection.

If it traces between preempt_schedule() and where it sets
PREEMPT_ACTIVE, it can indeed go into an infinite recursion. Yeah,
preempt_schedule_common() should be notrace, at least until we change
function_graph to have that recursion protection.
