Because i just extract this function from kprobes_save_local_irqflag(), i think
return unsigned long is fine.

As kernel_enable_single_step() / kernel_disable_single_step() are also called in
breakpoint_handler() and watchpoint_handler(), i am not sure it's a right thing
to put the daif flag prepare/cleanup into them, especially we don't have a context
to save the flags.
