I think it is good to unify such unions, but I meant above was, it was
also important to unify the opcode macro. Since poke_int3_handler()
clasifies the opcode by your *_INSN_OPCODE macro, it is natual to use
those opcode for text_poke_bp() interface.

Yes, it doesn't wait the change by design at this moment.

OK.

Yes, anyway, the last poke should recover another INT3... (for kprobe)

OK.
