Perhaps -pg does the same thing?

We could add a new macro:

/* All archs should have this, but we define it for consistency */
#ifndef ftrace_return_address0
# define ftrace_return_address0 __builtin_return_address(0)
#endif
/* Archs may use other ways for ADDR1 and beyond */
#ifndef ftrace_return_address
# define ftrace_return_address(n) __builtin_return_address(n)
#endif

And then have:

#define CALLER_ADDR0 ((unsigned long)ftrace_return_address0)
#define CALLER_ADDR1 ((unsigned long)ftrace_return_address(1))
[...]

And then you would only need to redefine ftrace_return_address.
