Subject: [PATCH 03/19] perf ftrace: select function/function_graph tracer automatically

The '-g/-G' options have already implied function_graph tracer should be
used instead of function tracer. So the extra option '--tracer' can be
killed.

This patch changes the behavior as below:
  - By default, function tracer is used.
  - If '-g' or '-G' option is on, then function_graph tracer is used.
  - The perf configuration item 'ftrace.tracer' is removed.
  - The default filter for -G is to trace all functions.

Here are some examples.

This will start tracing all functions using function tracer:
  $ sudo perf ftrace

This will trace all functions using function graph tracer:
  $ sudo perf ftrace -G

This will trace function vfs_read using function graph tracer:
  $ sudo perf ftrace -G vfs_read
