There are some new sparse warnings here that look semi-legit.
As in harmless but not erroneous.

kernel/trace/rethook.c:68:9: error: incompatible types in comparison expression (different address spaces):
kernel/trace/rethook.c:68:9:    void ( [noderef] __rcu * )( ... )
kernel/trace/rethook.c:68:9:    void ( * )( ... )

66 void rethook_free(struct rethook *rh)
67 {
68         rcu_assign_pointer(rh->handler, NULL);
70         call_rcu(&rh->rcu, rethook_free_rcu);
71 }

Looks like this should be a WRITE_ONCE() ?

And the __user annotations in bpf_trace.c are still not right,
first arg of kprobe_multi_resolve_syms() should __user:

kernel/trace/bpf_trace.c:2370:34: warning: incorrect type in argument 2 (different address spaces)

How do you wanna proceed?
