Subject: How can I check creator of probe point?


Hi,

I am trying to find a way to make statistics for memory allocation of my device driver.
I want to know how much memory it allocates and how many times it calls kmalloc().

So I am considering to use kprobe but I think it doesn't provide a way to identify who makes the probe point.
Can I distinguish kmalloc() calling only from my driver?

For example I think it could be like this:

diff --git a/samples/kprobes/kretprobe_example.c b/samples/kprobes/kretprobe_example.c
index 1041b67..5322e0a 100644
