Yixun, the bcc change looks like below:

--- a/src/cc/frontends/clang/
+++ b/src/cc/frontends/clang/
@@ -132,7 +132,7 @@ static std::string
check_bpf_probe_read_user(llvm::StringRef probe,

/* For arch with overlapping address space, dont use
bpf_probe_read for
* user read. Just error out */
-#if defined(__s390x__)
+#if defined(__s390x__) || defined(__riscv_)
overlap_addr = true;
return "";

Basically, prevent using bpf_probe_read() helper, so it will force user
to use bpf_probe_read_user() or bpf_probe_read_kernel(). and this should
make it work for old kernels.
