[PATCH -tip] kprobes: Prohibit probing on BUG() and WARN() address

From: Masami Hiramatsu
Date: Mon Sep 02 2019 - 07:06:19 EST

Since BUG() and WARN() may use a trap (e.g. UD2 on x86) to
get the address where the BUG() has occurred, kprobes can not
do single-step out-of-line that instruction. So prohibit
probing on such address.

Without this fix, if someone put a kprobe on WARN(), the
kernel will crash with invalid opcode error instead of
outputing warning message, because kernel can not find
correct bug address.
