I applied the first two. Small comments about this one.

As this is now in the trace-cmd.h header, please rename it to:

tracecmd_is_stack_tracer_enabled()

Why kill it here? We are reading the proc file system. What happens if
a new kernel does update this. We just broke this tool, and we don't
break user space with kernel updates. But user space should also be
robust for updates like this.

Actually, what I suggest is to keep the static read_proc function, and
simply add:

bool tracecmd_is_stack_tracer_enabled(void)
{
char buf;

buf = read_proc();
return buf != '0';
}

Much easier change. And handles cases where the proc file is 2 or more.
