tracing: Add trace_options kernel command line parameter



Add trace_options to the kernel command line parameter to be able to
set options at early boot. For example, to enable stack dumps of
events, add the following:

  trace_options=stacktrace

This along with the trace_event option, you can get not only
traces of the events but also the stack dumps with them.

trace_options=[option-list]
[FTRACE] Enable or disable tracer options at boot.
The option-list is a comma delimited list of options
that can be enabled or disabled just as if you were
to echo the option name into
/sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace_options
For example, to enable stacktrace option (to dump the
stack trace of each event), add to the command line:
trace_options=stacktrace
