I shall repeat my comment from version one of the patch...

What are the consequences of this, e.g. is it possible for a probe to
get stuck in an infinite loop of faulting? I hope there are no integrity
issues for the kernel itself.

Would be good if someone familiar with uprobes working could answer
that.

I've a few other comments...

Do we know why this is desirable, i.e. preferring the higher numbered
registers? If there isn't a preference, then no need for comment really.

Also, the comment as is is wrong, should be "...pick LR instead of R2"
because R1 wouldn't be chosen as the instruction already uses it.

There is a missing '=' in the line above. Interesting that GCC doesn't
complain (I tried compiling this patch and it didn't).

'addr' is not used so this line can be deleted

and so can this line ^^^
