    I don't know... does the below code make any sense?

    quick and dirty. NOT TESTED at all (not even compile tested).
    we can avoid extra probe_kernel_address() on anything that is
    not ia64, ppc64, etc.

    basically it checks that it's safe to access ptr (we can access it
    without page fault in __dereference_function_descriptor()). then
    we do ptr->ip, and also check if it's safe, but in

    I suppose somethign like

    pr_err("%pF\n", 1);

    can crash ia64, etc. correct?

    well. not tested.
