Subject: [PATCH 1/6] ftrace: define seq_file only for FMODE_READ

The purpose of the operation is to get ftrace_iterator, which is embedded
in file or seq_file for FMODE_WRITE/FMODE_READ respectively. Since we
don't have a seq_file for FMODE_WRITE case, it is meaningless to cast
file->private_data to seq_file.

Let's move the definition when there is a valid seq_file.
