[PATCH] kprobes: fix single-step out of line - take2
Now that PPC64 has no-execute support, here is a second try to fix the single step out of line during kprobe execution. Kprobes on x86_64 already solved this problem by allocating an executable page and using it as the scratch area for stepping out of line. Reuse that.
