Subject: [PATCH 2/6 v2] trace: Stop compiling in trace_clock unconditionally

From: Josh Triplett <josh@...htriplett.org>

Commit 56449f437 "tracing: make the trace clocks available generally",
in April 2009, made trace_clock available unconditionally, since
CONFIG_X86_DS used it too.

Commit faa4602e47 "x86, perf, bts, mm: Delete the never used BTS-ptrace code",
in March 2010, removed CONFIG_X86_DS, and now only CONFIG_RING_BUFFER (split
out from CONFIG_TRACING for general use) has a dependency on trace_clock. So,
only compile in trace_clock with CONFIG_RING_BUFFER or CONFIG_TRACING
enabled.
