Hi Andrew,
	As many of you know that kprobes exist in the main line kernel
for various architecture including i386, x86_64, ppc64 and sparc64.
Attached patches following this mail are a port of Kprobes and Jprobes for IA64.

I have tesed this patches for kprobes and Jprobes and this seems to work fine.
I have tested this patch by inserting kprobes on various slots and
various templates including various types of branch instructions.

I have also tested this patch using the tool 
and the kprobes for IA64 works great.

This path depends on 
which is in your mm tree.

Here is list of TODO things and pathes for the same will appear soon.
1) Support kprobes on "mov r1=ip" type of instruction
2) Support Kprobes and Jprobes to exist on the same address
3) Support Return probes
3) Architecture independent cleanup of kprobes

I am sending this mail through quilt and looks like the subject line appear to be
same on all patches, sorry about that.

Please apply.
