Yes, git grep shows that arm64 is using rcu_nmi_enter() in
OK, let's keep it, but maybe it is good to update the comment for
arm64 too. What about following?

+ * All functions in do_int3() on x86, do_debug_exception() on arm64 must be
+ * marked NOKPROBE before kprobes handler is called.
+ * ist_enter() on x86 and debug_exception_enter() on arm64 which is called
+ * before kprobes handle happens to call rcu_nmi_enter() which means
+ * that rcu_nmi_enter() must be marked NOKRPOBE.
