ftrace: Fix function graph with loading of modules

commit 8a56d7761d2d041ae5e8215d20b4167d8aa93f51 upstream.

Commit 8c4f3c3fa9681 "ftrace: Check module functions being traced on reload"
fixed module loading and unloading with respect to function tracing, but
it missed the function graph tracer. If you perform the following

 # cd /sys/kernel/debug/tracing
 # echo function_graph > current_tracer
 # modprobe nfsd
 # echo nop > current_tracer

You'll get the following oops message:

The above mentioned commit didn't go far enough. Well, it covered the
function tracer by adding checks in __register_ftrace_function(). The
problem is that the function graph tracer circumvents that (for a slight
efficiency gain when function graph trace is running with a function
tracer. The gain was not worth this).

The problem came with ftrace_startup() which should always be called after
__register_ftrace_function(), if you want this bug to be completely fixed.

Anyway, this solution moves __register_ftrace_function() inside of
ftrace_startup() and removes the need to call them both.
