kprobes: refuse kprobe insertion on add/sub_preempt_counter()
Srinivasa Ds [Sat, 23 Feb 2008 23:24:04 +0000 (15:24 -0800)]
Kprobes makes use of preempt_disable(),preempt_enable_noresched() and these
functions inturn call add/sub_preempt_count().  So we need to refuse user from
inserting probe in to these functions.

This patch disallows user from probing add/sub_preempt_count().
