tracing/ring-buffer: fix non cpu hotplug case

Impact: fix warning with irqsoff tracer

The ring buffer allocates its buffers on pre-smp time (early_initcall).
It means that, at first, only the boot cpu buffer is allocated and
the ring-buffer cpumask only has the boot cpu set (cpu_online_mask).

Later, the secondary cpu will show up and the ring-buffer will be notified
about this event: the appropriate buffer will be allocated and the cpumask
will be updated.

Unfortunately, if !CONFIG_CPU_HOTPLUG, the ring-buffer will not be
notified about the secondary cpus, meaning that the cpumask will have
only the cpu boot set, and only one cpu buffer allocated.

We fix that by using cpu_possible_mask if !CONFIG_CPU_HOTPLUG.

This patch fixes the following warning with irqsoff tracer running:

Because this tracer may try to swap two cpu ring buffers for an
unregistered cpu on the ring buffer.

This patch might also fix a fair loss of traces due to unallocated buffers
for secondary cpus.
