[PATCH 1/2] drop_monitor: fix sleeping in invalid context warning

Eric Dumazet pointed out this warning in the drop_monitor protocol to me:

It stems from holding a spinlock (trace_state_lock) while attempting to register
or unregister tracepoint hooks, making in_atomic() true in this context, leading
to the warning when the tracepoint calls might_sleep() while its taking a mutex.
Since we only use the trace_state_lock to prevent trace protocol state races, as
well as hardware stat list updates on an rcu write side, we can just convert the
spinlock to a mutex to avoid this problem.
