Subject[PATCH] kprobes: x86: mark 2 bytes NOP as boostable.
Date
x86 kprobes is unable to probe at 2 bytes nop like:

nopl 0x0(%rax,%rax,1)

which is 0x0f 0x1f 0x44 0x00 0x00.

Such nops have exactly 5 bytes which is able to hold a relative jmp
instruction. Boosting them should be obviously safe.

This patch enable boosting such nops by simply updating
twobyte_is_boostable[] array.
