BTW, it seems this automatically changes the offset without
user's intention or any warnings. How would you manage if the user
pass a new probe on _do_fork+0x4?

IOW, it is still the question who really wants to probe on
the _do_fork+"0", if kprobes modifies it automatically,
no one can do that anymore.
This can be happen if the user want to record LR or SP value
at the function call for debug. If kprobe always modifies it,
we will lose the way to do it.

Could you remove below function at this moment?

Without this automatic change, we still can change the offset
in upper layer.

Thank you,
