Subject: [PATCH] tracing: avoid build warning with HAVE_NOP_MCOUNT

Selecting HAVE_NOP_MCOUNT enables -mnop-mcount (if gcc supports it)
and sets CC_USING_NOP_MCOUNT. Reuse __is_defined (which is suitable for
testing CC_USING_* defines) to avoid conditional compilation and fix
the following gcc 9 warning on s390:

kernel/trace/ftrace.c:2514:1: warning: ‘ftrace_code_disable’ defined
but not used [-Wunused-function]
