Subject[PATCH 3/6 v3] tools lib api fs: Add tracefs mount helper functions
From: "Steven Rostedt (Red Hat)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

Since tracefs will now hold the event directory for perf, and
even though by default, debugfs still mounts tracefs on the
debugfs/tracing directory, the system admin may now choose to not
mount debugfs and instead just mount tracefs instead.

Having tracefs helper functions will facilitate having perf look
for tracefs first, and then try debugfs as a fallback.
