You can't probe a landing pad, uprobes on landing pads will be silently
ignored so the program isn't disrupted, you just don't get the expected
trace from those uprobes. This isn't new with the BTI support since
the landing pads are generally pointer auth instructions, these already
can't be probed regardless of what's going on with this series. It's
already on the list to get sorted.
