torture: Dump ftrace at shutdown only if requested
If there is a large number of torture tests running concurrently, all of which are dumping large ftrace buffers at shutdown time, the resulting dumping can take a very long time, particularly on systems with rotating-rust storage. This commit therefore adds a default-off torture.ftrace_dump_at_shutdown module parameter that enables shutdown-time ftrace-buffer dumping. Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@kernel.org>
