Subject: ARM: config issue with ftrace function graph tracer

I'm having a problem with the ftrace function graph tracer on a 32 bit arm
board (orangepi pc). A bisect points to the following commit:

f9b58e8c7d03 ("ARM: 8800/1: use choice for kernel unwinders")

Before this commit, if I use sunxi_defconfig and then menuconfig to enable
FTRACE and FUNCTION_TRACER then the function graph tracer works. With this
commit, and as of v5.0-rc1, doing the same as above results in a broken
function graph tracer and often an oops as well. The commit introduces a
choice group and it looks like it should default to UNWINDER_FRAME_POINTER
default when I enable FUNCTION_TRACER but this has no effect on the choice.
The choice always defaults to the other option which is UNWINDER_ARM. If I
manually choose UNWINDER_FRAME_POINTER then the function graph tracer works

Any idea why the default behaviour has changed?
