Subject[PATCH -tip v3 0/2] x86: kprobes: Prohibit kprobes on Xen/KVM emulate prefixes

Here is the 3rd version of patches to handle Xen/KVM emulate
prefix by x86 instruction decoder.

These patches allow x86 instruction decoder to decode
Xen and KVM emulate prefix correctly, and prohibit kprobes to
probe on it.

Josh reported that the objtool can not decode such special
prefixed instructions, and I found that we also have to
prohibit kprobes to probe on such instruction.

This series can be applied on -tip master branch which
has merged Josh's objtool/perf sharing common x86 insn
decoder series.

In the 2nd version, I added KVM emulate prefix support and generalized
the interface. (insn_has_xen_prefix -> insn_has_emulate_prefix)
Also, I added insn.emulate_prefix_size for those prefixes because
that prefix is NOT an x86 instruction prefix, and the next instruction
of those emulate prefixes can have x86 instruction prefix. So we
can not use insn.prefix for it.

In this 3rd version, I just fixed tools/perf/ so
that it can ignore the difference of xen/prefix header path.

Thank you,
