* [PATCH] kprobes: bugfix: set kprobes_all_disarmed earlier to enable re-optimization.

In original code, the probed instruction doesn't get optimized after

echo 0 > /sys/kernel/debug/kprobes/enabled
echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/kprobes/enabled

This is because original code checks kprobes_all_disarmed in
optimize_kprobe(), but this flag is turned off after calling that
function. Therefore, optimize_kprobe() will see
kprobes_all_disarmed == true and doesn't do the optimization.

This patch simply turns off kprobes_all_disarmed earlier to enable
optimization.

OK, a workaround is to disable/enable optimizing via sysctl.

Anyway, thank you for finding that! :)

Hi Masami Hiramatsu,

What about this patch? Are you still thinking on it like
'[PATCH] kprobes: bugfix: checks kprobes_all_disarmed in unoptimized_kprobe()' ?

Thank you.

Without this patch.

With this patch.

So, looks OK to me too ;)

Yeah, as long as you use Signed-off-by instead of Acked-by, 
which is really how patches written by others should be 
routed.

Please re-send any still pending patches that are not yet 
upstream.

Thanks,

	Ingo
