tracing/ftrace: stop {irqs, preempt}soff tracers when tracing is stopped



Impact: fix a selftest warning

In some cases, it's possible to see the following warning on irqsoff
tracer selftest:

During the selftest of irqsoff tracer, we do that:

	/* disable interrupts for a bit */
	local_irq_disable();
	udelay(100);
	local_irq_enable();
	/* stop the tracing. */
	tracing_stop();
	/* check both trace buffers */
	ret = trace_test_buffer(tr, NULL);

If a callsite performs a new max delay with irqs off just after
tracing_stop, update_max_tr_single() -> ring_buffer_swap_cpu()
will be called with the buffers disabled by tracing_stop(), hence
the warning, then ring_buffer_swap_cpu() return -EAGAIN and
update_max_tr_single() complains.

Fix it by also stopping the tracer before stopping the tracing globally.
A similar situation can happen with preemptoff and preemptirqsoff tracers
where we apply the same fix.
