kprobes: cleanup aggr_kprobe related code

Currently, kprobes can disable all probes at once, but can't disable it
individually (not unregister, just disable an kprobe, because
unregistering needs to wait for scheduler synchronization).  These patches
introduce APIs for on-the-fly per-probe disabling and re-enabling by
dis-arming/re-arming its breakpoint instruction.

This patch:

Change old_p to ap in add_new_kprobe() for readability, copy flags member
in add_aggr_kprobe(), and simplify the code flow of
