Subject[patch part-II V2 02/13] x86/entry: Mark enter_from_user_mode() notrace and NOKPROBE
Both the callers in the low level ASM code and __context_tracking_exit()
which is invoked from enter_from_user_mode() via user_exit_irqoff() are
marked NOKPROBE. Allowing enter_from_user_mode() to be probed is
inconsistent at best.

Aside of that while function tracing per se is safe the function trace
entry/exit points can be used via BPF as well which is not safe to use
before context tracking has reached CONTEXT_KERNEL and adjusted RCU.

Mark it notrace and NOKROBE.
