Subject[PATCH -tip 0/2] kprobes: fix bugs by updating blacklist
Recently I've found that putting probes on some functions
could lock or reboot the kernel. These two patches fix
those bugs by prohibiting probing such functions by
adding those to blacklist(kprobes.text).

In both cases, those functions are related to int3 handling
execution path. One is related to irqoff-tracer and the other
is related to notifier debug option.

Thank you,
