Subject[PATCH -tip v2 3/3] [BUGFIX] kprobes: Prohibit probing on func_ptr_is_kernel_text
Prohibit probing on func_ptr_is_kernel_text().
Since the func_ptr_is_kernel_text() is called from
notifier_call_chain() which is called from int3 handler,
probing it may cause double int3 fault and kernel will

This happenes when the kernel built with CONFIG_DEBUG_NOTIFIERS=y.
