I think that one was also wrong, as the intention of the existing
stop_critical_timings() function is already to do the same that
Corey's patch does, i.e. stop the trace before we go to idle as
if we were turning IRQs on.

Corey, does it work for you if you replace the new trace_hardirqs_on()
you added with time_hardirqs_on() or stop_critical_timing()?
