Subject: [for-next][PATCH 03/12] tracepoints: Do not punish non static call users

From: "Steven Rostedt (VMware)" <rostedt@...dmis.org>

With static calls, a tracepoint can call the callback directly if there is
only one callback registered to that tracepoint. When there is more than
one, the static call will call the tracepoint's "iterator" function, which
needs to reload the tracepoint's "funcs" array again, as it could have
changed since the first time it was loaded.

But an arch without static calls is punished by having to load the
tracepoint's "funcs" array twice. Once in the DO_TRACE macro, and once
again in the iterator macro.

For archs without static calls, there's no reason to load the array macro
in the first place, since the iterator function will do it anyway.

Change the __DO_TRACE_CALL() macro to do the load and call of the
tracepoints funcs array only for architectures with static calls, and just
call the iterator function directly for architectures without static calls.
