Oh, it's due to the tracepoint timing.
In gc_thread_func(),
	do {
		wait with wait_ms = 300s

		decrease_sleep_time(&wait_ms); -> wait_ms = 30s
		tracepoint with wait_ms = 30s

		after f2fs_gc() call, wait_ms becomes 300s again.
	}

So, this patch should fix that.

Subject: [PATCH] f2fs: relocate the tracepoint for background_gc

Once f2fs_gc is done, wait_ms is changed once more.
So, its tracepoint would be located after it.
