Subject: [RFC][PATCH] tracepoints: Free early tracepoints after RCU is
 initialized


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

When enabling trace events via the kernel command line, I hit this warning:

WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 13 at kernel/rcu/srcutree.c:236 check_init_srcu_struct+0xe/0x61

 </IRQ>

The problem is that the enabling of trace events before RCU is set up will
cause SRCU to give this warning. To avoid this, add a list to store probes
that need to be freed till after RCU is initialized, and then free them
then.
