Subject: [PATCH v7 16/17] tracing: reserve $12(t0) for mcount-ra-address of gcc 4.5

From: Wu Zhangjin <wuzhangjin@...il.com>

A new option -mmcount-ra-address for gcc 4.5 have been sent by David
Daney <ddaney@...iumnetworks.com> in the thread "MIPS: Add option to
pass return address location to _mcount", which help to record the
location of the return address(ra) for the function graph tracer of MIPS
to hijack the return address easier and safer. that option used the
$12(t0) register by default, so, we reserve it for it, and use t1,t2,t3
instead of t0,t1,t2.
