[patch 3/3] Kprobes IA64 safe register kprobe

From: Anil S Keshavamurthy <anil.s.keshavamurthy_at_intel.com>
Date: 2005-06-07 03:36:55
The current kprobes does not yet handle register
kprobes on some of the following kind of instruction
which needs to be emulated in a special way.
1) mov r1=ip
2) chk -- Speculation check instruction
This patch attempts to fail register_kprobes() when
user tries to insert kprobes on the above kind of
instruction.
