Well, I think we should actually apply both, but the comment needs to be
updated, as it will no longer be outside recursion. And the comment is
wrong now as well, as its only outside recursion protection for the
assist_func().

But it does prevent it from being always called for perf.

* Make notrace because it can be called by the internal functions of
* ftrace, and making this notrace removes unnecessary recursion calls.
