ftrace: use raw_smp_processor_id for mcount functions

Due to debug hooks in the kernel that can change the way smp_processor_id
works, use raw_smp_processor_id in mcount called functions (namely
ftrace_record_ip). Currently we annotate most debug functions from calling
mcount, but we should not rely on that to prevent kernel lockups.

This patch uses the raw_smp_processor_id to prevent a recusive crash
that can happen if a debug hook in smp_processor_id calls mcount.
