Just to be sure this didn't escape your attention... Please note that
this becomes true after

[PATCH 2/2] uprobes: Change handle_swbp() to expose bp_vaddr to handler_chain()
http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=135688247630262

so you should no longer use uprobe_get_swbp_addr or inst->vaddr to
change regs->ip.

Yes, Anton's v2 does this.

But. Don't you also need to know the address of function we are going
to return from?

Probably you do not, uprobe_consumer should know which function (but
not vaddr) it probes, but please confirm.

Oleg.
