    Please see my comments inline below.

    The kprobes fault handler is called if an exception is
    generated for any instruction within the fault-handler or when
    Kprobes single-steps the probed instruction.
    AFAIK kprobes does not handle page faults in the above case and just returns
    immediately resuming the normal execution.

    In the below code, I moved jprobe_return_end to inline assembler statement.

    void jprobe_return(void)
    asm volatile (" xchg %%rbx,%%rsp \n"
    " int3 \n"
    " .globl jprobe_return_end \n"
    " jprobe_return_end: \n"
    " nop \n"::"b"
