[PATCH 2/4] perf ftrace: Move setup_pager before opening trace_pipe




The perf ftrace fails to reset tracer after finish the recording like
below:

  $ sudo perf ftrace -v hello
  write 'nop' to tracing/current_tracer failed: Device or resource busy
  ...

This is because the trace_pipe file is open in pager process.  Move the
pager setup before opening the file.
