I don't remember this coming up last Plumbers nor KS neither, given
that we were focused on other topics.

Would the general approach you envision be based on emitting all code
generated by compilation of all objects under kernel/tracing and
kernel/events into a specific "nokprobes" text section of the kernel ?
Perhaps we could create a specific linker scripts for those directories,
or do you have in mind a neater way to do this ?
