I tested this patch with my kretprobe on "inet_csk_accept" when there
are many processes waiting in the accept() syscall. I can now
successfully see the nmissed counter in
/sys/kernel/debug/tracing/kprobe_profile being incremented when the
kretprobe is missed.

Tested-by: Alban Crequy <alban@kinvolk.io>
