I wonder why CONFIG_KPROBE_EVENTS_ON_NOTRACE=n doesn't help, it
was ignored if the arch doesn't support CONFIG_KPROBES_ON_FTRACE.
Naveen, could you try to run this test case with following patch
diff --git a/kernel/trace/trace_kprobe.c b/kernel/trace/trace_kprobe.c
index b911e9f6d9f5..241a55313476 100644
@@ -433,7 +433,7 @@ static int disable_trace_kprobe(struct trace_event_call *call,
-#if defined(CONFIG_KPROBES_ON_FTRACE) && \
+#if defined(CONFIG_FUNCTION_TRACER) && \

Of course you need to enable CONFIG_FUNCTION_TRACER=y, but it may
pass the test.
