[PATCH v3 0/4] arm64: kprobes: Update blacklist checking on arm64

From: Masami Hiramatsu

Here is the v3 series of update of the kprobe blacklist
checking on arm64.

I found that some blacklist checking code were mis-placed in
arch_prepare_kprobe() and arch_within_kprobe_blacklist().
Since the blacklist just filters by symbol, smaller than the
symbol, like extable must be checked in arch_prepare_kprobe().
Also, all function (symbol) level check must be done by blacklist.

For arm64, it checks the extable entry address in blacklist
and exception/irqentry function in arch_prepare_kprobe().
And, RODATA check is unneeded since kernel/kprobes.c
already ensures the probe address is in kernel-text area.

In v3, I rebased on the latest arm64 kernel which includes
James' KVM/HYP fixes for kprobes, and fix a reported bugs
in [4/4].

Changes in v3:
- [4/4] Fixes to remove redundant blacklist of kprobe_text
and add blacklist on exception_text.

Thank you,
