Without this patch.
-----
[root@localhost tracing]# echo p do_fork+5 > kprobe_events
[root@localhost tracing]# echo 1 > events/kprobes/p_do_fork_5/enable
[root@localhost tracing]# cat ../kprobes/list
ffffffff810bd055  k  do_fork+0x5    [OPTIMIZED]
[root@localhost tracing]# echo 0 > /sys/kernel/debug/kprobes/enabled
[root@localhost tracing]# cat ../kprobes/list
ffffffff810bd055  k  do_fork+0x5
[root@localhost tracing]# echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/kprobes/enabled
[root@localhost tracing]# cat ../kprobes/list
ffffffff810bd055  k  do_fork+0x5

With this patch.
------
[root@localhost tracing]# echo p do_fork+5 > kprobe_events
[root@localhost tracing]# echo 1 > events/kprobes/enable
[root@localhost tracing]# cat ../kprobes/list
ffffffff810bc1c5  k  do_fork+0x5    [OPTIMIZED]
[root@localhost tracing]# echo 0 > ../kprobes/enabled
[root@localhost tracing]# cat ../kprobes/list
ffffffff810bc1c5  k  do_fork+0x5
[root@localhost tracing]# echo 1 > ../kprobes/enabled
[root@localhost tracing]# cat ../kprobes/list
ffffffff810bc1c5  k  do_fork+0x5    [OPTIMIZED]
------

So, looks OK to me too ;)
