[PATCH 3.11 073/128] tracing: Remove ftrace_stop/start() from reading the trace file

From: Luis Henriques
Date: Thu Jul 24 2014 - 06:06:40 EST -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: "Steven Rostedt (Red Hat)" <rostedt@xxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 099ed151675cd1d2dbeae1dac697975f6a68716d upstream.

Disabling reading and writing to the trace file should not be able to
disable all function tracing callbacks. There's other users today
(like kprobes and perf). Reading a trace file should not stop those
from happening.
