Subjectftrace bug
Hi Steven,

I wanted to use FTRACE on an ARM platform and I hit the following
warning which results in ftrace bug. This happens upon loading a module.
Looking up the warning I suspect the branch target is too far off. The
module is quite large and therefor not loaded in the modules section. Is
there a way to exclude a module. In ftrace_module_init I see a check for
!mod->num_ftrace_callsites. Is there a way to avoid creating ftrace
callsites in a module?
