SubjectRe: [PATCH] kprobes: be more permissive when user specifies both symbol name and address
Date
Ok, I've followed your suggestion. Thanks :-)

Currently, if user specifies both symbol name and address, we just
bail out.

This might be too rude. This patch makes it give more tolerance.
If both are specified, check address first, if the symbol found
does not match the one user specify, print a waring. If not found,
return -ENOENT, because some symbols might have muplitple instances,
we don't bother to check symbol name.
