I believe you need both. The *_enabled() functions wont prevent build
errors. But since tracing is seldom enabled (usually only when you want
to see what's happening), the *_enabled() functions optimize the code
to not perform tasks that are only needed when tracing is enabled. When
I say "enabled" I mean actively tracing, as supposed to being just
enabled in the kernel.
