Ah, right and Great! these native_* things are too fundamental one.
Hmm, curiously, those are defined as inline functions, and
I also couldn't find some of those symbols even with your previous

As you can see, your panic messages, most of them caused GFP.
This may mean that int3 software exception must not happened
on those sites. Not the recursive call.

Perhaps, I'd better add those native_* things into symbol-name
based blacklist, instead of adding __kprobes, because those
are not related to kprobes recursion.
