Subject[PATCH -tip v3 7/7] x86: kprobes: Do not disable preempt on int3 path
Date
Since int3 and debug exception(for singlestep) are run with
IRQ disabled and while running single stepping we drop IF
from regs->flags, that path must not be preemptible. So we
can remove the preempt disable/enable calls from that path.

Changes in v3:
- Split user-side changes to another patch
Changes in v2:
- Include user-side changes.
