Subject: [patch V4 part 1 09/36] x86/entry/64: Avoid pointless code when
 CONTEXT_TRACKING=n

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@...utronix.de>

GAS cannot optimize out the test and conditional jump when context tracking
is disabled and CALL_enter_from_user_mode is an empty macro.

Wrap it in #ifdeffery. Will go away once all this is moved to C.
