Hi Masami,

I have addressed all your comments on my local machine, the code logic
looks much more clear now, thank you very much.

When I test kprobe_example.ko with a C function like "kernel_clone",
it works well, but the kernel hangs [1] when test with an assembler
function like "__memset_fast" [2].

Just did some quick research and it seems the bug is related with
kallsyms_lookup_name(), I'm looking for a solution.
