Subject: [PATCH 00/10] kprobes: Make KUnit and add stacktrace on kretprobe tests


Here is the 2nd version of the series to change the kprobes selftest
to KUnit and add testcases for stacktrace on kretprobes, which has
been fixed recently on x86. The previous version is here;

In this version, I fixed some typos and coding issues according to
Will and Mark's comments. Thanks!

And I added 1 RFC patch, which will detect the unwinding error on
arm64 (just for testing) according to Mark's comment. But since
I'm not sure how to handle that error correctly in the unwinder
code. So this is just for testing.

Mark, can you tell me how can I handle it? Just asserted by WARN_ON_ONCE()
is OK? Or print out more error information? For the debugging, we need
more information, so I printed out the error code.

Thank you,
