Here's the patch I have at the head of the series now, with the above
ugliness changed to an unconditional __tracepoint_string attribute.

Subject: [PATCH] trace: don't refer __tracepoint_string to an undefined linker section

When CONFIG_TRACING is not set, the linker script doesn't specify any
__tracepoint_str section.  Let those __tracepoint_string marked strings
live in the default rodata section in that case.
