Subject: [PATCH] tracing: Ignore mmiotrace from kernel commandline

From: "Ziqian SUN (Zamir)" <zsun@...hat.com>

The mmiotrace tracer cannot be enabled with ftrace=mmiotrace in
kernel commandline. With this patch, a trace_noboot_tracer_list
is implemented and will be checked during system boot. If the
tracer declares itself as not for boot up, system will print out
a message and continue booting.
