Subject[PATCH -tip] kprobes: Lock rcu_read_lock() while searching kprobe
Date
Anders reported that the lockdep warns that suspicious
RCU list usage in register_kprobe() (detected by
CONFIG_PROVE_RCU_LIST.) This is because get_kprobe()
access kprobe_table[] by hlist_for_each_entry_rcu()
without rcu_read_lock.

If we call get_kprobe() from the breakpoint handler context,
it is run with preempt disabled, so this is not a problem.
But in other cases, instead of rcu_read_lock(), we locks
kprobe_mutex so that the kprobe_table[] is not updated.
So, current code is safe, but still not good from the view
point of RCU.

Let's lock the rcu_read_lock() around get_kprobe() and
ensure kprobe_mutex is locked at those points.

Note that we can safely unlock rcu_read_lock() soon after
accessing the list, because we are sure the found kprobe has
never gone before unlocking kprobe_mutex. Unless locking
kprobe_mutex, caller must hold rcu_read_lock() until it
finished operations on that kprobe.
