    So maybe something like this:

    void smp_replace_instruction(void *info) {
    struct ins_replace_args *parms;
    parms = (struct ins_replace_args *) info;
    *parms->addr = *parms->insn

    void __kprobes arch_arm_kprobe(struct kprobe *p)
    struct ins_replace_args parms;
    parms.addr = p->addr;

    smp_call_function(smp_replace_instruction, &parms, 0, 1);
