Support for -fentry -mrecord-mcount and -mnop-mcount has been added for
s390 in gcc master branch. An attempt to build 4.18 for s390 with that
gcc would produce a kernel with no __mcount_loc though because of the
new condition in scripts/Makefile.build:210 which disables recordmcount
tool if compiler supports -mrecord-mcount (s390 relies on combination
of -mhotpatch=0,3 gcc flag and recordmcount.pl).

This patch series adds s390 ftrace support based on combination of -pg
-fentry -mrecord-mcount and -mnop-mcount gcc flags (that fixes issue
mentioned above). At the same time this patch series fixes couple of
minor issues and adds -mnop-mcount gcc flag support (utilized by s390).

CC_FLAGS_FTRACE is exported and later used to remove ftrace relevant
build flags from files which should be built without ftrace support.
For that reason add -mfentry to CC_FLAGS_FTRACE as well. That fixes
a problem with vdso32 build on s390, where -mfentry could not be used
together with -m31 flag.

At the same time flags like -pg and -mfentry are not relevant for asm
files, so avoid adding them to KBUILD_AFLAGS.

Introduce CC_FLAGS_USING instead of CC_USING_FENTRY to collect
-DCC_USING_FENTRY (and future alike) which are relevant for both
KBUILD_CFLAGS and KBUILD_AFLAGS.

Currently if CONFIG_FTRACE_MCOUNT_RECORD is enabled -mrecord-mcount
compiler flag support is tested for every Makefile.

Top 4 cc-option usages:
    511 -mrecord-mcount
     11  -fno-stack-protector
      9 -Wno-override-init
      2 -fsched-pressure

To address that move cc-option from scripts/Makefile.build to top Makefile
and export CC_USING_RECORD_MCOUNT to be used in original place.

While doing that also add -mrecord-mcount to CC_FLAGS_FTRACE (if gcc
actually supports it).

-mcount-nop gcc option generates the calls to the profiling functions
as nops which allows to avoid patching mcount jump with NOP instructions
initially.

-mcount-nop gcc option will be activated if platform selects
HAVE_NOP_MCOUNT and gcc actually supports it.
In addition to that CC_USING_NOP_MCOUNT is defined and could be used by
architectures to adapt ftrace patching behavior.

Utilize -mfentry and -mnop-mcount gcc options together with
-mrecord-mcount to get compiler generated calls to the profiling functions
as nops which are compatible with current -mhotpatch=0,3 approach.  At the
same time -mrecord-mcount enables __mcount_loc section generation by
the compiler which allows to avoid using scripts/recordmcount.pl script.

Good catch.  Does it make a measurable compile time difference?

Do you have numbers which tell how much this reduces the compile time of
the kernel on s390? I assume this change makes quite some difference.

Very roughly, best time across several runs. With -j24 on 24 core lpar
with -mfentry -mrecord-mcount etc
real    0m54.748s
user    12m32.041s
sys     1m17.778s

vs -mhotpatch=0,3 + scripts/recordmcount.pl:
real    0m56.752s
user    12m52.386s
sys     1m35.873s
