Subject: [PATCH -v6 11/13] tracing: not trace mips_timecounter_read() for MIPS

We use mips_timecounter_read() to get the timestamp in MIPS, so, it's
better to not trace it and it's subroutines, otherwise, it will goto
recursion(hang) when using function graph tracer. we use the
__notrace_funcgraph annotation to indicate them not to be traced.

And there are two common functions called by mips_timecounter_read(), we
define the __arch_notrace macro to ensure they are not to be traced.
