Fix a problem seen on i686 machine with NX support where the instruction
could not be single stepped because of NX bit set on the memory pages
allocated by kprobes module.  This patch provides allocation of instruction
solt so that the processor can execute the instruction from that location
similar to x86_64 architecture.  Thanks to Bibo and Masami for testing this
patch.
