I noticed that there's only one user of ftrace_arch_read_dyn_info().
That was used a while ago during the NMI updating in x86, and superh
copied it to implement its version of handling NMIs during
stop_machine().

But that is a debug feature, and this code hasn't been touched since
2009. Also, x86 no longer does the ftrace updates with stop_machine()
and instead uses breakpoints. If superh needs to modify its code, it
should implement the breakpoint conversion, and remove stop_machine().
Which also gets rid of the NMI issue.

Anyway, I want to nuke ftrace_arch_read_dyn_info() and this gets rid of
the one user, which is for an arch that shouldn't need it anymore.
