[PATCH] kprobes: fix race condition in __unregister_kprobe_top

From: Li Bin
Date: Tue Apr 19 2016 - 21:07:39 EST

In the following case, it will trigger kernel panic:
1. register a kprobe for one function
2. register a jprobe for the same function (to make it easier to
reproduce, let the entry callback take a long time such as calling
3. trigger the function be called, and then unregister the jprobe
(before the entry callback calling jprobe_return)

The reason is that in __unregister_kprobe_top (unregister_jprobe)
the break_handler of the aggrprobe will be set NULL, but now the
entry callback may has been triggered (before jprobe_return), and
then in jprobe_return, it trigger int3/brk exception, in exception
handler, because the break_handler has been set NULL, it will not
setup_singlestep, and will return to the original instrucion...

To fix this bug, __unregister_kprobe_top call the synchronize_sched()
before clearing the handler.
