tracing/core: make the read callbacks reentrants

Now that several per-cpu files can be read or spliced at the
same, we want the read/splice callbacks for tracing files to be
reentrants.

Until now, a single global mutex (trace_types_lock) serialized
the access to tracing_read_pipe(), tracing_splice_read_pipe(),
and the seq helpers.

Ie: it means that if a user tries to read trace_pipe0 and
trace_pipe1 at the same time, the access to the function
tracing_read_pipe() is contended and one reader must wait for
the other to finish its read call.

The trace_type_lock mutex is mostly here to serialize the access
to the global current tracer (current_trace), which can be
changed concurrently. Although the iter struct keeps a private
pointer to this tracer, its callbacks can be changed by another
function.

The method used here is to not keep anymore private reference to
the tracer inside the iterator but to make a copy of it inside
the iterator. Then it checks on subsequents read calls if the
tracer has changed. This is not costly because the current
tracer is not expected to be changed often, so we use a branch
prediction for that.

Moreover, we add a private mutex to the iterator (there is one
iterator per file descriptor) to serialize the accesses in case
of multiple consumers per file descriptor (which would be a
silly idea from the user). Note that this is not to protect the
ring buffer, since the ring buffer already serializes the
readers accesses. This is to prevent from traces weirdness in
case of concurrent consumers. But these mutexes can be dropped
anyway, that would not result in any crash. Just tell me what
you think about it.
