Subject[PATCH v2 4/9] sched,rcu,tracing: Avoid tracing before in_nmi() is correct
If we call into a tracer before in_nmi() becomes true, the tracer can
no longer detect it is called from NMI context and behave correctly.

Therefore change nmi_{enter,exit}() to use __preempt_count_{add,sub}()
as the normal preempt_count_{add,sub}() have a (desired) function
trace entry.

This fixes a potential issue with current code; AFAICT when the
function-tracer has stack-tracing enabled __trace_stack() will
malfunction when it hits the preempt_count_add() function entry from
NMI context.
