Subject[PATCH -tip v3 6/7] kprobes/x86: Remove disable_irq from ftrace-based/optimized kprobe
Date
Actually kprobes doesn't need to disable irq if it is
called from ftrace/jump trampoline code because
Documentation/kprobes.txt says

-----
Probe handlers are run with preemption disabled. Depending on the
architecture and optimization state, handlers may also run with
interrupts disabled (e.g., kretprobe handlers and optimized kprobe
handlers run without interrupt disabled on x86/x86-64).
-----

So let's remove irq disabling from those handlers.
