perf, trace: Fix !x86 build bug
Patch b7e2ecef92 (perf, trace: Optimize tracepoints by removing IRQ-disable from perf/tracepoint interaction) made the unfortunate mistake of assuming the world is x86 only, correct this. The problem was that perf_fetch_caller_regs() did local_save_flags() into regs->flags, and I re-used that to remove another local_save_flags(), forgetting !x86 doesn't have regs->flags. Do the reverse, remove the local_save_flags() from perf_fetch_caller_regs() and let the ftrace site do the local_save_flags() instead.
