Subject: [PATCH] uprobes: Add uprobe_task->dup_work/dup_addr

uprobe_task->vaddr is a bit strange. First of all it is not really
needed, we can move it into arch_uprobe_task. The generic code uses
it only to pass the additional argument to arch_uprobe_pre_xol(),
and since it is always equal to instruction_pointer() this looks
even more strange.

And both utask->vaddr and and utask->autask have the same scope,
they only have the meaning when the task executes the probed insn
out-of-line. This means it is safe to reuse both in UTASK_RUNNING
state.

OTOH, it is also used by uprobe_copy_process() and dup_xol_work()
for another purpose, this doesn't look clean and doesn't allow to
move this member into arch_uprobe_task.

This patch adds the union with 2 anonymous structs into uprobe_task.

The first struct is autask + vaddr, this way we "almost" move vaddr
into autask.

The second struct has 2 new members for uprobe_copy_process() paths:
->dup_addr which can be used instead ->vaddr, and ->dup_work which
can be used to avoid kmalloc() and simplify the code.

Note that this union will likely have another member(s), we need
something like "private_data_for_handlers" so that the tracing
handlers could use it to communicate with call_fetch() methods.
