I tried the patch on x86_64-linux but it doesn't work for me. First I added 
the define to linux

diff --git a/gcc/config/i386/linux.h b/gcc/config/i386/linux.h
index 81dfd1e..54051ed 100644

+/* Choose the correct profiler mcount name.  */
+#define MCOUNT_NAME_BEFORE_PROLOGUE "__fentry__"
 #define MCOUNT_NAME "mcount"

But when I try to set -mfentry on a simple test program I get

 sorry, unimplemented: -mfentry isn't supported for this target

I think that's because of

+    default_profile_top_flag = 1;
+    only_default = 0;
+    if (flag_fentry == -1)
+      flag_fentry = default_profile_top_flag;
+    else if (flag_fentry != default_profile_top_flag && only_default)
+      {
+        if (!default_profile_top_flag)
+          sorry ("-mfentry isn't supported for this target");
+        else
+          sorry ("-mno-fentry isn't supported for this target");

and PROFILE_BEFORE_PROLOGUE is never set for i386, default_profile_flag
is always 0
