Subject[for-linus][PATCH 08/12] tracing: Remove WARN_ON in start_thread()
From: Vasily Averin <vvs@virtuozzo.com>

This patch reverts commit 978defee11a5 ("tracing: Do a WARN_ON()
if start_thread() in hwlat is called when thread exists")

.start hook can be legally called several times if according
tracer is stopped
