tracing: add comments to explain TRACE_EVENT out of protection
The commit: commit 5ac35daa9343936038a3c9c4f4d6d3fe6a2a7bd8 Author: Xiao Guangrong <xiaoguangrong@cn.fujitsu.com> tracing/events: fix the include file dependencies Moved the TRACE_EVENT out of the ifdef protection of tracepoints.h but uses the define of TRACE_EVENT itself as protection.
