ftrace is a mcount based kernel tracing tool/framework, which is originally
from RT_PREEMPT(http://rt.wiki.kernel.org).

ftrace is short for function tracer, this is its original name, but now, it
becomes a kernel tracing framework, lots of kernel tracers are built on it,
such as irqoff tracer, wakeup tracer and so forth.  these tracers are
arch-independent(?), but some of them are arch-dependent, such as the original
ftrace: function tracer, and dynamic function tracer, function graph tracer,
and also, system call tracer.

here is the mips porting of these four arch-dependent tracers, it will enable
the following new kernel config options in linux-mips system.

kernel hacking --->
           Tracers -->
                [*] Kernel Function Tracer
                [*]   Kernel Function Graph Tracer
                ...
                [*] Trace syscalls
                                ...
                [*] enable/disable ftrace tracepoints dynamically

in reality, because the high-precise timestamp getting function are
arch-dependent, lots of the tracers are arch-dependent. the arch-dependent part
is that: sched_clock, or we say ring_buffer_time_stamp or trace_clock_local
function. to get high-precise timestamp, we can read the MIPS clock counter,
but since it is only 32bit long, so, overflow should be handled carefully.

read the following document, and play with it:
        Documentation/trace/ftrace.txt
