SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/7] kprobes: Propagate error from disarm_kprobe_ftrace()

No, no registered kprobes are rejected at the beginning of __disable_kprobe.

And I'm not sure unregister_ftrace_function() and ftrace_set_filter_ip() can
fail if correctly set. That seems a bug in the kernel (not a normal
situation).

OK.

OK, this looks good to me except for the comment above.
But could you also update this for the latest -tip tree?

Thank you,

Yeah, this must be done.
