arm64: Add kernel return probes support (kretprobes)
AArch64 ISA does not have instructions to pop the PC register value from the stack(like ARM v7 has ldmia {...,pc}) without using one of the general purpose registers. This means return probes cannot return to the actual return address directly without modifying register context, and without trapping into debug exception. So, like many other architectures, we prepare a global routine with NOPs which serve as a trampoline to hack away the function return address by placing an extra kprobe on the trampoline entry. The pre-handler of this special 'trampoline' kprobe executes the return probe handler functions and restores original return address in ELR_EL1. This way the saved pt_regs still hold the original register context to be carried back to the probed kernel function.
