Subject[BUGFIX PATCH] tracing/kprobes: Fix to check notrace function with correct range
Fix within_notrace_func() to check notrace function correctly.

Since the ftrace_location_range(start, end) function checks
the range inclusively (start <= ftrace-loc <= end), the end
address must not include the entry address of next function.

However, within_notrace_func() uses kallsyms_lookup_size_offset()
to get the function size and calculate the end address from
adding the size to the entry address. This means the end address
is the entry address of the next function.

In the result, within_notrace_func() fails to find notrace
function if the next function of the target function is

Let's subtract 1 from the end address so that ftrace_location_range()
can check it correctly.

Fixes: commit 45408c4f9250 ("tracing: kprobes: Prohibit probing on notrace function")
