tracing: Fix lock inversion in trace_event_enable_tgid_record()
Task T2 Task T3 trace_options_core_write() subsystem_open() mutex_lock(trace_types_lock) mutex_lock(event_mutex) set_tracer_flag() trace_event_enable_tgid_record() mutex_lock(trace_types_lock) mutex_lock(event_mutex) This gives a circular dependency deadlock between trace_types_lock and event_mutex. To fix this invert the usage of trace_types_lock and event_mutex in trace_options_core_write(). This keeps the sequence of lock usage consistent.
