MIPS: Tracing: Add static function tracer support for MIPS
If -pg of gcc is enabled with CONFIG_FUNCTION_TRACER=y. a calling to _mcount will be inserted into each kernel function. so, there is a possibility to trace the kernel functions in _mcount. This patch add the MIPS specific _mcount support for static function tracing. by default, ftrace_trace_function is initialized as ftrace_stub(an empty function), so, the default _mcount will introduce very little overhead. after enabling ftrace in user-space, it will jump to a real tracing function and do static function tracing for us. and -ffunction-sections is incompatible with -pg, so, disable it when ftracer is enabled.
