SubjectRe: [PATCH 4/8] sched,rcu,tracing: Mark preempt_count_{add,sub}() notrace

I actually depend on these function being traced. We do have
"preempt_enable_notrace()" and "preempt_disable_notrace()" for places
that shouldn't be traced. Can't we use those? (or simply
__preempt_count_add()) in the nmi_enter() code instead? (perhaps create
a preempt_count_add_notrace()).
