Subject[BUGFIX PATCH] kprobes/x86: Remove IRQ disabling from jprobe handlers
Jprobe actually doesn't need to disable IRQs while calling
handlers, because Documentation/kprobes.txt says:

Probe handlers are run with preemption disabled. Depending on the
architecture and optimization state, handlers may also run with
interrupts disabled (e.g., kretprobe handlers and optimized kprobe
handlers run without interrupt disabled on x86/x86-64).

So let's remove IRQ disabling from jprobes too.
