Subject: [for-linus][PATCH 13/27] kprobes: treewide: Replace arch_deref_entry_point() with
 dereference_symbol_descriptor()

From: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@...nel.org>

~15 years ago kprobes grew the 'arch_deref_entry_point()' __weak function:

  3d7e33825d87: ("jprobes: make jprobes a little safer for users")

But this is just open-coded dereference_symbol_descriptor() in essence, and
its obscure nature was causing bugs.

Just use the real thing and remove arch_deref_entry_point().
