Subject[PATCH] ARM: ftrace: remove old mcount support
Date
Commit cafa0010cd51 ("Raise the minimum required gcc version to 4.6")
raised the minimum GCC version to 4.6. Old mcount is only required for
GCC versions older than 4.4.0. Hence old mcount support can be dropped
too.

Besides cleaning up code it also simplifies changes changes for
clang support, if added...
