From: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com>

Impact: quicken mcount calls that are not replaced by dyn ftrace

Dynamic ftrace no longer does on the fly recording of mcount locations.
The mcount locations are now found at compile time. The mcount
function no longer needs to store registers and call a stub function.
It can now just simply return.

Since there are some functions that do not get converted to a nop
(.init sections and other code that may disappear), this patch should
help speed up that code.
