microblaze: ftrace: Add dynamic trace support
With dynamic function tracer, by default, _mcount is defined as an "empty" function, it returns directly without any more action. When enabling it in user-space, it will jump to a real tracing function(ftrace_caller), and do the real job for us. Differ from the static function tracer, dynamic function tracer provides two functions ftrace_make_call()/ftrace_make_nop() to enable/disable the tracing of some indicated kernel functions(set_ftrace_filter). In the kernel version, there is only one "_mcount" string for every kernel function, so, we just need to match this one in mcount_regex of scripts/recordmcount.pl. For more information please look at code and Documentation/trace folder. Steven ACK that scripts/recordmcount.pl part.
