Subject[PATCH -tip v3 2/2] x86: kprobes: Prohibit probing on instruction which has emulate prefix
Date
Prohibit probing on instruction which has XEN_EMULATE_PREFIX
or KVM's emulate prefix. Since that prefix is a marker for Xen
and KVM, if we modify the marker by kprobe's int3, that doesn't
work as expected.
