Wait, probably I was confused by this patch and 4/6...

To simplify, lets ignore the normal uprobes. Yes I still think that it
would be better to set "regs->ip = orig_return_vaddr" before calling
->handler() and not pass it as an argument.

But, probably uprobe_consumer also needs to know bp_vaddr? IOW, the
address of the function which we are going to return from? In this case,
yes, we also need another argument. And prepare_uretprobe/etc should
be changed to record bp_vaddr passed from handle_swbp(). And
uretprobe_run_handlers() should pass this bp_vaddr, not orig_return_vaddr.

Or I am confused.

Anton?

Oleg.
