ftrace: Use current addr when converting to nop in __ftrace_replace_code()

In __ftrace_replace_code(), when converting the call to a nop in a function
it needs to compare against the "curr" (current) value of the ftrace ops, and
not the "new" one. It currently does not affect x86 which is the only arch
to do the trampolines with function graph tracer, but when other archs that do
depend on this code implement the function graph trampoline, it can crash.

Here's an example when ARM uses the trampolines (in the future):
