Subject[PATCH RT 19/20] trace: correct off by one while recording the trace-event
4.1.27-rt31-rc1 stable review patch.
If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <bigeasy@linutronix.de>

Trace events like raw_syscalls show always a preempt code of one. The
reason is that on PREEMPT kernels rcu_read_lock_sched_notrace()
increases the preemption counter and the function recording the counter
is caller within the RCU section.
