tracing: add comments to explain TRACE_EVENT out of protection

The commit:
  commit 5ac35daa

  Author: Xiao Guangrong <>
  tracing/events: fix the include file dependencies

Moved the TRACE_EVENT out of the ifdef protection of tracepoints.h
but uses the define of TRACE_EVENT itself as protection. This patch
adds comments to explain why.

* Note: we keep the TRACE_EVENT outside the include file ifdef protection.
* This is due to the way trace events work. If a file includes two
* trace event headers under one "CREATE_TRACE_POINTS" the first include
* will override the TRACE_EVENT and break the second include.
