[patch 1/4] Kprobes - Enable funcions only for required arch

Keshavamurthy, Anil S
[PATCH] Kprobes - Enable funcions only for required arch

        Kernel/kprobes.c defines get_insn_slot() and free_insn_slot()
which are currently required _only_ for x86_64 and powerpc (which has
no-exec support).

FYI, get{free}_insn_slot() functions manages the memory
page which is mapped as executable, required for instruction
emulation.

This patch moves those two functions under
__ARCH_WANT_KPROBES_INSN_SLOT and defines
__ARCH_WANT_KPROBES_INSN_SLOT in arch specific
kprobes.h file.
