Subject: [PATCH 3.13 046/259] tracing: Remove ftrace_stop/start() from reading the trace file

3.13.11.6 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: "Steven Rostedt (Red Hat)" <rostedt@...dmis.org>

commit 099ed151675cd1d2dbeae1dac697975f6a68716d upstream.

Disabling reading and writing to the trace file should not be able to
disable all function tracing callbacks. There's other users today
(like kprobes and perf). Reading a trace file should not stop those
from happening.
