[PATCH] Switch Kprobes inline functions to __kprobes for ia64

Andrew Morton pointed out that compiler might not inline the functions
marked for inline in kprobes.  There-by allowing the insertion of probes
on these kprobes routines, which might cause recursion.

This patch removes all such inline and adds them to kprobes section
there by disallowing probes on all such routines.  Some of the routines
can even still be inlined, since these routines gets executed after the
kprobes had done necessay setup for reentrancy.
