Ah, right! and if the singlestep requires setting up the regs->ARM_pc,
we also do that before this check. So the right code will be;

static void
optimized_callback(struct optimized_kprobe *op, struct pt_regs *regs)
{
	struct kprobe_ctlblk *kcb = get_kprobe_ctlblk();
	unsigned long flags;

	local_irq_save(flags);
	/* Save skipped registers */
	regs->ARM_pc = (unsigned long)op->kp.addr;
	regs->ARM_ORIG_r0 = ~0UL;

        if (kprobe_running())
		kprobes_inc_nmissed_count(&op->kp);
        else {
		__this_cpu_write(current_kprobe, &op->kp);
 		kcb->kprobe_status = KPROBE_HIT_ACTIVE;
		opt_pre_handler(&op->kp, regs);
		__this_cpu_write(current_kprobe, NULL);
	}
	op->kp.ainsn.insn_singlestep(op->kp.opcode, &op->kp.ainsn, regs);
	local_irq_restore(flags);
}

Thank you,
