Subject: Re: [PATCH 14/18] maccess: allow architectures to provide kernel
 probing directly

Hi Christoph,

This patch seems to introduce new implementation of probe_kernel_read/write()
and strncpy_from_kernel_unsafe(), but also drops copy_from/to_kernel_nofault()
and strncpy_from_kernel_nofault() if HAVE_ARCH_PROBE_KERNEL is defined.
In the result, this cause a link error with BPF and kprobe events.

BTW, what is the difference of *_unsafe() and *_nofault()?
(maybe we make those to *_nofault() finally?)

Thank you,
