Probably want to put the above in an asm with exception handling.

Hmm, that condition also looks worrisome. Should we just always search
for s{d,w} R,X(sp)?
Since there should only be stores of registers into the sp above the
jump to mcount. The break out loop is a check for move. I think it would
be safer to have the break out loop is a check for non storing of a
register into SP.

Also might want to make the above into a asm with exception handling.

Hmm, may need to do more than this. See below.

Although you may have turned off fgraph tracer in
ftrace_get_parent_addr, nothing stops the below from messing with the
stack. The return stack may get off sync and break later. If you fail
the above, you should not be calling the push function below.
