Subject[PATCH v4 01/17] perf ftrace: select function/function_graph tracer automatically
Date
The '-g/-G' options have already implied function_graph tracer should be
used instead of function tracer. So the extra option '--tracer' can be
killed.

This patch changes the behavior as below:
- By default, function tracer is used.
- If '-g' or '-G' option is on, then function_graph tracer is used.
- The perf configuration item 'ftrace.tracer' is marked as deprecated.
- The option '--tracer' is marked as deprecated.

Here are some examples.

This will start tracing all functions using function tracer:
$ sudo perf ftrace

This will trace all functions using function graph tracer:
$ sudo perf ftrace -G

This will trace function vfs_read using function graph tracer:
$ sudo perf ftrace -G vfs_read

v3: remove default '*' for -G/-T.
