Correct, ftrace can trace functions marked with __kprobes. That said,
the instruction you are looking at here, is in a file that is
blacklisted from recordmcount.

  CFLAGS_REMOVE_insn.o = $(CC_FLAGS_FTRACE)

All ftrace flags are removed from the compiling of insn.c, and every
function in that file will not be traced.
