ftrace/x86: Add support for C version of recordmcount
Steven Rostedt [Wed, 13 Oct 2010 21:12:30 +0000 (17:12 -0400)]
This patch adds the support for the C version of recordmcount and
compile times show ~ 12% improvement.

After verifying this works, other archs can add:

 HAVE_C_MCOUNT_RECORD

in its Kconfig and it will use the C version of recordmcount
instead of the perl version.
