Everything that calls irqentry_enter() should be noinstr, and this
patch prepares for the next generic_entry convert.

eg:
asmlinkage void noinstr do_page_fault(struct pt_regs *regs)
{
irqentry_state_t state = irqentry_enter(regs);

__do_page_fault(regs);

local_irq_disable();

irqentry_exit(regs, state);
}
NOKPROBE_SYMBOL(do_page_fault);

You still could profile __do_page_fault.

That's not true, have a look at power & arm64. All of them have some
limitations at the entry of page_fault.
