  6838	 * Some archs only support passing ip and parent_ip. Even though
  6839	 * the list function ignores the op parameter, we do not want any
  6840	 * C side effects, where a function is called without the caller
  6841	 * sending a third parameter.
  6842	 * Archs are to support both the regs and ftrace_ops at the same time.
  6843	 * If they support ftrace_ops, it is assumed they support regs.
  6844	 * If call backs want to use regs, they must either check for regs
  6846	 * Note, CONFIG_DYNAMIC_FTRACE_WITH_REGS expects a full regs to be saved.
  6847	 * An architecture can pass partial regs with ftrace_ops and still
  6848	 * set the ARCH_SUPPORTS_FTRACE_OPS.
