With this patch, the function graph tracer doesn't work at boot time.
Please see the log below:

# mount -t debugfs debugfs /sys/kernel/debug/
# cd /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace
# cat current_tracer

Note that I tested it both on 5.4.47-rt28 and 5.6.19-rt11 (but not on
latest mainline).

Regarding the function tracer, you were correct: it can trace
without any issue.

Thank you,
Itai Handler
