    Revert "dtrace: make 'ring' and 'fill' policies imply 'noswitch' flag"
    This reverts commit e92491d95ff3500e140eafa614e88ca84ffb0d26.
    It was cherry-picked as f0ed49921c2891733b7ee65679a8dcba5398e3b6.
    The general idea looked good to me.  In particular, it allowed to save
    some memory and avoid memory allocation failures when a large buffer
    size was requested along with ring and fill policies.
    But I didn't take into account that the second, supposedly unused
    buffer, was actually used as the scratch buffer.  The scratch buffer is
    used as a temporary space for DTrace subroutines like copyin, copyinstr,
    and alloca.
    I think that the change can be fixed by allocating a separate smaller
    buffer for the scratch buffer, but that fix would require more work than
    I am able to do now.  Hence the revert.
