Is this a kernel bug? If yes then please convert this to a WARN_ON_ONCE() that 
doesn't print any kernel addresses.

Can this happen during normal use? If yes then just remove the warning message.

As this is a signal of a kernel bug, just convert this to a regular WARN_ONCE() 
that doesn't print any kernel addresses.

No, this function should just go away and be replaced by a WARN() in 
reenter_kprobe().

Thanks,
