BTW, just for putting a probe on nf_ct_resolve_clash, please give the module *path*
instead of the module *name*. For example,

perf probe -v -m /lib/modules/5.11.0-test01/kernel/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack.ko nf_ct_resolve_clash

This should work (at least works for me), because it directly loads the symbols from the .ko file.

Thank you,
