tracing/function-graph-tracer: add a new .irqentry.text section
Frederic Weisbecker [Tue, 9 Dec 2008 22:53:16 +0000 (23:53 +0100)]
Impact: let the function-graph-tracer be aware of the irq entrypoints

Add a new .irqentry.text section to store the irq entrypoints functions
inside the same section. This way, the tracer will be able to signal
an interrupts triggering on output by recognizing these entrypoints.

Also, make this section recordable for dynamic tracing.
