(Nits: "which are called" and "since it is")

This nokprobe_inline ends up as __always_inline if kprobes is enabled.
What do we expect the compiler to do with this? save_return_addr is passed as a
function-pointer to walk_stackframe()... I don't see how the compiler can inline it!

This would be needed for on_accessible_stack().
Should we cover ftrace_graph_get_ret_stack()?, or is that already in hand?

Thanks,
