It could be, but it feels a bit different. In my testing from
December, it's as though it wasn't the activated probes *hitting* that
were associated with the slowdown, but them merely being activated.
It was as though something with the kprobes/ftrace probe-registration
code performed a lot more work than it did longer ago. (One way to
test this could be to be more careful in the selection of kprobes
being enabled. For examle, emplace thousands, but only unused loaded
modules.) I'm sorry I didn't get time to investigate further.
