ftrace: Only update the function code on write to filter files
Steven Rostedt [Sat, 30 Apr 2011 02:35:33 +0000 (22:35 -0400)]
If function tracing is enabled, a read of the filter files will
cause the call to stop_machine to update the function trace sites.
It should only call stop_machine on write.
