[PATCH v2 0/4] arm64: kprobes: Fix some bugs in arm64 kprobes
Hi,

Here are the v2 patches which fixes kprobe bugs on arm64.

Naresh reported that recently ftracetest crashes kernel, and I found
there are 3 different bugs around the crash. In v1 thread, we found
one another bug of RCU and debug exception.

- Kprobes on arm64 doesn't recover pstate.D mask after single stepping.
This causes a real kernel crash if a kprobe is unexpectedly nested.
- Some symbols which are called from blacklisted function, are not
blacklisted.
- Debug exception is not visible to RCU, thus rcu_read_lock() cause
a warning inside it.
- Debug exception handlers on arm64 is using rcu_read_lock(), but
that is not needed because interrupts are disabled.

This series includes fixes for above bugs.

Thank you,
