    Pull tracing fixes from Steven Rostedt:
     "There was some breakage with the changes for jump labels in the 4.11
      merge window:
       - powerpc broke as jump labels uses the two LSB bits as flags in
         A check was added to make sure that all jump label entries were 4
         bytes aligned, but powerpc didn't work that way for modules. Adding
         an alignment in the module linker script appeared to be the best
       - Jump labels also added an anonymous union to access those LSB bits
         as a normal long. But because this structure had static
         initialization, it broke older compilers that could not statically
         initialize anonymous unions without brackets.
       - The command line parameter for setting function graph filter broke
         the "EMPTY_HASH" descriptor by modifying it instead of creating a
         new hash to hold the entries.
       - The command line parameter ftrace_graph_max_depth was added to
         allow its setting at boot time. It uses existing code and only the
         command line hook was added.
         This is not really a fix, but as it uses existing code without
         affecting anything else, I added it to this release. It was ready
         before the merge window closed, but I wanted to let it sit in
         linux-next for a couple of days first"
