BTW, I'm considering to add an option to allow putting
kprobes on notrace function - just for debugging
ftrace by kprobes. That is "developer only" option
so generally it should be disabled, but for debugging
the ftrace, we still need it. Or should I introduce
another kprobes module for debugging it?

Thank you,
