So if we fail to allocate task state,..

we try to undo the probe? That doesn't make any sense. I thought you
meant to return to userspace, let it re-take the trap and try again
until you do manage to allocate the user resource.

This behaviour makes probes totally unreliable under memory pressure.

Also, there's a scary amount of TODO in there...
