I found that these interfaces seem tightly coupled with fgraph_ops. But that
cause a problem when I'm using it from kretprobe.
kretprobe has 2 handlers, entry handler and return handler, and both need
pt_regs. But fgraph_ops's entryfunc and retfunc do not pass the pt_regs.
That is the biggest issue for me on these APIs.
Can we expand fgraph_ops with regs parameter?
