Subject[PATCH] stop_machine: Mark functions as notrace
Like the commit cb9d7fd51d9f ("watchdog: Mark watchdog touch functions
as notrace"), some architectures assume that the stopped CPUs don't make
function calls to traceable functions when they are in the stopped
state. For example, it causes unexpected kernel crashed when switching
tracer on RISC-V.

The following patches added calls to these two functions, fix it by
adding the notrace annotations.

Fixes: 4ecf0a43e729 ("processor: get rid of cpu_relax_yield")
Fixes: 366237e7b083 ("stop_machine: Provide RCU quiescent state in
