Subject[PATCH] Use -mcount-record for dynamic ftrace
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

gcc 5 supports a new -mcount-record option to generate ftrace
tables directly. This avoids the need to run record_mcount
manually.

Use this option when available.

It also has a -mcount-nop option to generate the mcount calls
as nops. So far that is not implemented, but it could be used
to optimize patching at boot up.
