Interesting is that when testing your next patch I see:

[root@ssdandy linux]# perf probe -s ./kernel_src/ --add='fs/super.c;s->s_count=1;'
The /root/.debug/.build-id/dd/32e51921ede0fd46f034091b7f6a0f2e01ebda file has no debug information.
Rebuild with CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y, or install an appropriate debuginfo package.
Error: Failed to add events.
[root@ssdandy linux]#

Much, much clear message about that debuginfo file :-)

But then, to test your [2/3] patch I'll have to figure out how to setup the
environment so that I can match your results, shouldn't be hard, but would
save reviewing time if you stated it in the commit log message.
