With this patch in place, parisc:allmodconfig no longer builds.

Error log:
Arch parisc is not supported with CONFIG_FTRACE_MCOUNT_RECORD at scripts/ line 405.
make[2]: *** [scripts/mod/empty.o] Error 2

Due to this problem, CONFIG_FTRACE_MCOUNT_RECORD can no longer be
enabled in parisc builds. Since that is auto-selected by DYNAMIC_FTRACE,
DYNAMIC_FTRACE can no longer be enabled, and with it everything that
depends on it.

Bisect log attached.
