Subject: [PATCH V9 7/9] tracing/osnoise: Allow multiple instances of the same tracer

Currently, the user can start only one instance of timerlat/osnoise
tracers and the tracers cannot run in parallel.

As starting point to add more flexibility, let's allow the same tracer to
run on different trace instances. The workload will start when the first
trace_array (instance) is registered and stop when the last instance
is unregistered.

So, while this patch allows the same tracer to run in multiple
instances (e.g., two instances running osnoise), it still does not allow
instances of timerlat and osnoise in parallel (e.g., one timerlat and
osnoise). That is because the osnoise: events have different behavior
depending on which tracer is enabled (osnoise or timerlat). Enabling
the parallel usage of these two tracers is in my TODO list.
