Subject: [PATCH v5 35/37] tracing: Increase trace_recursive_lock() limit for synthetic events

Synthetic event generation needs to happen while the current event is
still in progress, so add 1 to the trace_recursive_lock() recursion
limit to account for that.

Because we also want to allow for the possibility of a synthetic event
being generated from another synthetic event, add an additional
increment for that as well.
