Sorry for confusion...

I meant, if only exec*( could race with _register(), we could add another uprobe
hook which updates all (delayed) counters before return to user-mode.

What I tried to say is that we can't avoid uprobe_mmap()->delayed_uprobe_install()
because dlopen() can race with _register() too, just like exec.
