[PATCH v5 01/16] uprobes: allow ignoring of probe hits

From: David Long
Date: Thu Jan 23 2014 - 15:09:15 EST

From: "David A. Long" <dave.long@xxxxxxxxxx>

Allow arches to decided to ignore a probe hit. ARM will use this to
only call handlers if the conditions to execute a conditionally executed
instruction are satisfied.
