Subject[PATCH v2] kcsan, trace: Make KCSAN compatible with tracing
From
Previously the system would lock up if ftrace was enabled together with
KCSAN. This is due to recursion on reporting if the tracer code is
instrumented with KCSAN.

To avoid this for all types of tracing, disable KCSAN instrumentation
for all of kernel/trace.

Furthermore, since KCSAN relies on udelay() to introduce delay, we have
to disable ftrace for udelay() (currently done for x86) in case KCSAN is
used together with lockdep and ftrace. The reason is that it may corrupt
lockdep IRQ flags tracing state due to a peculiar case of recursion
(details in Makefile comment).
