Regarding the UPROBES, I read the code of trace_uprobe_create() and found a place for improvement.

diff --git a/kernel/trace/trace_uprobe.c b/kernel/trace/trace_uprobe.c
index 3cf7128e1ad3..8c81f04d7755 100644
--- a/kernel/trace/trace_uprobe.c
+++ b/kernel/trace/trace_uprobe.c
@@ -567,16 +567,18 @@ static int trace_uprobe_create(int argc, const char **argv)

return -ENOMEM;

+ trace_probe_log_init("trace_uprobe", argc, argv);
+ trace_probe_log_set_index(1); /* filename is the 2nd argument */
+
/* Find the last occurrence, in case the path contains ':' too. */
arg = strrchr(filename, ':');
if (!arg || !isdigit(arg[1])) {
+ trace_probe_log_err(arg + 1 - filename, BAD_UPROBE_OFFS);
kfree(filename);
- return -ECANCELED;
+ ret = -EINVAL;
+ goto out;
}

- trace_probe_log_init("trace_uprobe", argc, argv);
- trace_probe_log_set_index(1); /* filename is the 2nd argument */
-

Is there anything else that is missing?
Could you provide more detailed guidance?
