    ms/kcov: don't trace the code coverage code
    Kcov causes the compiler to add a call to __sanitizer_cov_trace_pc() in
    every basic block.  Ftrace patches in a call to _mcount() to each
    function it has annotated.
    Letting these mechanisms annotate each other is a bad thing.  Break the
    loop by adding 'notrace' to __sanitizer_cov_trace_pc() so that ftrace
    won't try to patch this code.
    This patch lets arm64 with KCOV and STACK_TRACER boot.
