Subject: [PATCH ftrace/core v4 1/4] kprobes/ftrace: Recover original IP if
 pre_handler doesn't change it

Recover original IP register if the pre_handler doesn't change it.
Since current kprobes doesn't expect that another ftrace handler
may change regs->ip, it sets kprobe.addr + MCOUNT_INSN_SIZE to
regs->ip and returns to ftrace.
This seems wrong behavior since kprobes can recover regs->ip
and safely pass it to another handler.

This adds a code which recovers original regs->ip passed from
ftrace right before returning to ftrace, so that another ftrace
user can change regs->ip.

Changes in v4:
 - Fix description and remove bugfix tag.
