tracing: pass around ring buffer instead of tracer
The latency tracers (irqsoff and wakeup) can swap trace buffers on the fly. If an event is happening and has reserved data on one of the buffers, and the latency tracer swaps the global buffer with the max buffer, the result is that the event may commit the data to the wrong buffer. This patch changes the API to the trace recording to be recieve the buffer that was used to reserve a commit. Then this buffer can be passed in to the commit.
