SubjectRe: [PATCH -tip 1/2] [BUGFIX] kprobes/x86: Prohibit probing on debug_stack_*

_Please_ add a __noprobes method, for new annotations.

Naming it '__kprobes' is actively confusing, as it suggests that the
function is somehow positively involved with kprobes support.
Instead it should the noinline/notrace pattern.

I complained about this before and not much happened on this front.
We might not want to convert the whole kernel straight away, but for
_new_ annotations there's no excuse not to name them properly. Lets
phase out __kprobes, and use __noprobe from now on, okay?
