[PATCH] disallow kprobes on notifier_call_chain
bibo,mao [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:17:34 +0000 (02:17 -0700)]
When kprobe is re-entered, the re-entered kprobe kernel path will will call
atomic_notifier_call_chain function, if this function is kprobed that will
incur numerous kprobe recursive fault.  This patch disallows kprobes on
atomic_notifier_call_chain function.
