Subject[PATCH -tip v7 2/2] [BUGFIX] kprobes/x86: Do not jump-optimize kprobes on irq entry code
Date
Since the kernel segment registers are not prepared at the
entry of irq-entry code, if a kprobe on such code is
jump-optimized, accessing per-cpu variables may cause
kernel panic.
However, if the kprobe is not optimized, it kicks int3
exception and set segment registers correctly.

This checks probe-address and if it is in irq-entry code,
it prohibits optimizing such kprobes. This means we can
continuously probing such interrupt handlers by kprobes
but it is not optimized anymore.
