SubjectRe: [PATCH v4 10/17] arm64: disable kretprobes with SCS

I'm a bit confused as to why that's the case -- could you please
elaborate on how this is incompatible?

IIUC kretrobes works by patching the function entry point with a BRK, so
that it can modify the LR _before_ it is saved to the stack. I don't see
how SCS affects that.

When the instrumented function returns, it'll balance its SCS state,
then "return" to kretprobe_trampoline. Since kretprobe_trampoline is
plain assembly, it doesn't have SCS, and can modify the LR live, as it
does.

So functionally, that appears to work. What am I missing?

Thanks,
Mark.
