Oleg,

Not sure I understand this completely...

When you say 'correct ip' you mean the original vaddr where we now have
a uprobe breakpoint and not the xol copy, right?

Coredump needs to report the correct ip, but should it also not report
correctly the instruction that caused the signal? Ergo, shouldn't we
put the original instruction back at the uprobed vaddr?
