It seemed odd to me we were not allowing kprobe on the rcu_nmi_enter() but
allowing it on exit (from a code reading standpoint) so my reaction was to
add it to both, but we could probably keep that as a separate
patch/discussion since it is slightly unrelated to the patch.. Sorry to
confuse the topic.
