riscv existed as of [0], so I'd argue it is a proper bug fix, as
corresponding select ARCH_HAS_NON_OVERLAPPING_ADDRESS_SPACE should
have been added back then.

But I also agree that BCC tools should be updated to use proper
bpf_probe_read_{kernel,user}[_str()] helpers, please contribute such
fixes to BCC tools and BCC itself as well. Cc'ed Alan as his ksnoop in
libbpf-tools seems to be using bpf_probe_read() as well and needs to
be fixed.

archs where they work")
