Hi Steve,

Yes, this is a real fix, not related to the kprobes command line feature.

First of all, the problem was that kprobes(module_init) was initialized
later than trace_kprobe(fs_initcall). the commit b5f8b32c93b2 is to solve
it. But I missed that the break-point hander initialization can be done
in arch_initcall on some archs. This is fixing that bug.

Thank you,
