    ms/kcov: don't profile branches in kcov
    Profiling 'if' statements in __sanitizer_cov_trace_pc() leads to
    unbound recursion and crash:
    	__sanitizer_cov_trace_pc() ->
    		ftrace_likely_update ->
    			__sanitizer_cov_trace_pc() ...
    Define DISABLE_BRANCH_PROFILING to disable this tracer.
