That's exactly the case with this set of patches. There's a set of
TRACE_POINT macros that are required for users to toggle areas where
they want to see the backtraces and also an DISABLE_BACKTRACES macro to
turn this feature on/off globally.

It also respects the NDEBUG macros, so as not to impact performance when
debugging is disabled.
