SubjectRe: [PATCH 6/8] trace_uprobe/sdt: Fix multiple update of same reference counter

Yes,

could you explain why this happens? sdt_increment_ref_ctr() and
sdt_decrement_ref_ctr() look symmetrical, _decrement_ should see
the same mappings?

Ether way, this patch doesn't look right at first glance... Just
for example,

...

To simplify, suppose that tu->sml is empty.

Some process calls this function, increments the counter and adds its ->mm into
the list.

Then it exits, ->mm is freed.

The next fork/exec allocates the same memory for the new ->mm, the new process
calls trace_uprobe_mmap_callback() and sdt_check_mm_list() returns T?

Oleg.
