Hmm. Thinking more, it seems that this patch has another problem.

IIUC, the whole point of arch_uprobe_ignore() is to avoid
handler_chain() if the condition was not satisfied, so you need
to call it before handler_chain() ?

Otherwise this logic should go into can_skip_sstep() and we simply
do not need the new hook, just we need to tweak the (ugly)
UPROBE_SKIP_SSTEP logic.

Oleg.
