ftrace: add a script to produce a hierarchical view of a function trace
This script parses a function trace and then produces a hierarchical view of the function call stack after processing it into a tree. Changes on V2 thanks to the trace sent by Steven: - Support both the files "trace" and "trace_pipe" (comments and space differences) - Correct the mini HOW-TO at the beginning.

+
+This script parses a trace provided by the function tracer in
+kernel/trace/trace_functions.c
+The resulted trace is processed into a tree to produce a more human
+view of the call stack by drawing textual but hierarchical tree of
+calls. Only the functions's names and the the call time are provided.
+
+Usage:
+ Be sure that you have CONFIG_FUNCTION_TRACER
+ # mkdir /debugfs
+ # mount -t debug debug /debug
+ # echo function > /debug/tracing/current_tracer
+ $ cat /debug/tracing/trace_pipe > ~/raw_trace_func
+ Wait some times but not too much, the script is a bit slow.
+ Break the pipe (Ctrl + Z)
+ $ scripts/draw_functrace.py < raw_trace_func > draw_functrace
+ Then you have your drawn trace in draw_functrace
