You don't need to set notrace functions, unless their addresses
are referenced somewhere, which unfortunately might happen
for some functions but this is rare.

ditto here.

Hmm yeah this is not very nice to do that in core functions because
of a specific arch problem.
At least you have __notrace_funcgraph, this is a notrace
that only applies if CONFIG_FUNCTION_GRAPH_TRACER
so that it's still traceable by the function tracer in this case.

But I would rather see a __mips_notrace on these two core functions.
