When CONFIG_SCHEDSTATS is not set,
I have objdumped the vmlinux, and the perf_trace_sched_stat_template
is still there withou my patch.

$ objdump -D vmlinux > vmlinux.asm
$ cat vmlinux.asm | grep trace_sched_stat
ffffffff810b3b40 <perf_trace_sched_stat_template>:
...

So I can't get your point really.
Forgive me if I missed something.

Thanks
Yafang
