OK, I added this, but I'm also adding this on top:

Subject: [PATCH] ftrace: Check for empty hash and comment the race with
registering probes

The race between adding a function probe and reading the probes that exist
is very subtle. It needs a comment. Also, the issue can also happen if the
probe has has the EMPTY_HASH as its func_hash.

Fixes: 7b60f3d876156 ("ftrace: Dynamically create the probe ftrace_ops for the trace_array")
