I was going to do that originally, but I didn't like that it wouldn't be inlined
despite being just a single pointer assignment. And mm_init_uprobes_state() is
at least consistent with the other mm_init_*() helpers in kernel/fork.c. I
don't feel too strongly though, and it's true that nothing outside of uprobes.h
and uprobes.c references xol_area currently, so maybe it would be clearer to
have it there.
