Subject[PATCH 00/10] ftrace: Add register_ftrace_direct()

Alexei mentioned that he would like a way to access the ftrace fentry
code to jump directly to a custom eBPF trampoline instead of using
ftrace regs caller, as he said it would be faster.

I proposed a new register_ftrace_direct() function that would allow
this to happen and still work with the ftrace infrastructure. I posted
a proof of concept patch here:

https://lore.kernel.org/r/20191023122307.756b4978@gandalf.local.home

This patch series is a more complete version, and the start of the
actual implementation. I haven't run it through my full test suite but
it passes my smoke tests and some other custom tests I built.

I also realized that I need to make the sample modules depend on X86_64
as it has inlined assembly in it that requires that dependency.

This is based on 5.4-rc6 plus the permanent patches that prevent
a ftrace_ops from being disabled by /proc/sys/kernel/ftrace_enabled

Below is the tree that contains this code.
