Under the help of the -mlong-calls option of gcc, This revision comes with the
module tracing support. and there are also lots of cleanups and fixes.
therefore, it is ready to upstream.

Currently, function graph tracer support have some overhead for searching the
stack address of the return address(ra). we hope the PROFILE_BEFORE_PROLOGUE
macro will be enabled by default in the next version of gcc, and then the
overhead can be removed via hijacking the ra register directly for both
non-leaf and leaf function.

Thanks very much to the people in the CC list for their feedbacks, all the
lastest changes goes to this git repo:

git://  linux-mips/dev/ftrace-upstream

Welcome to play with it and give more feedbacks. 

Thanks & Regards,
       Wu Zhangjin
