Subject: [PATCH] kcsan, trace: Make KCSAN compatible with tracing

Previously the system would lock up if ftrace was enabled together with
KCSAN. This is due to recursion on reporting if the tracer code is
instrumented with KCSAN.

To avoid this for all types of tracing, disable KCSAN instrumentation
for all of kernel/trace.
