[PATCH] Kprobes: Incorrect handling of probes on ret/lret instruction
Prasanna S Panchamukhi [Thu, 5 May 2005 23:15:40 +0000 (16:15 -0700)]
Kprobes could not handle the insertion of a probe on the ret/lret
instruction and used to oops after single stepping since kprobes was
modifying eip/rip incorrectly.  Adjustment of eip/rip is not required after
single stepping in case of ret/lret instruction, because eip/rip points to
the correct location after execution of the ret/lret instruction.  This
patch fixes the above problem.
