tracing/fgraph: Fix set_graph_function from showing interrupts

The tracefs file set_graph_function is used to only function graph functions
that are listed in that file (or all functions if the file is empty). The
way this is implemented is that the function graph tracer looks at every
function, and if the current depth is zero and the function matches
something in the file then it will trace that function. When other functions
are called, the depth will be greater than zero (because the original
function will be at depth zero), and all functions will be traced where the
depth is greater than zero.

The issue is that when a function is first entered, and the handler that
checks this logic is called, the depth is set to zero. If an interrupt comes
in and a function in the interrupt handler is traced, its depth will be
greater than zero and it will automatically be traced, even if the original
function was not. But because the logic only looks at depth it may trace
interrupts when it should not be.

The recent design change of the function graph tracer to fix other bugs
caused the depth to be zero while the function graph callback handler is
being called for a longer time, widening the race of this happening. This
bug was actually there for a longer time, but because the race window was so
small it seldom happened. The Fixes tag below is for the commit that widen
the race window, because that commit belongs to a series that will also help
fix the original bug.
