Subject: [PATCH 2/3] trace-cmd: s/plugin/tracer/ in record's man page

Currently, the man page of trace-cmd record states that:
	To see a list of available plugins, see trace-cmd-list(1).
While `trace-cmd list` [w/o options] mentions "tracers", which is the proper
term there. The inconsistency exists because the terminology in trace-cmd/ftrace
changed over time: what we call today "tracers" use to be called "plugins" when
ftrace was created. This simple patch updates trace-cmd record's man page
accordingly, in order to avoid any confusion and improve the user experience.
