/*
 * NOTE: This example is works on x86 and powerpc.
 * Here's a sample kernel module showing the use of kprobes to dump a
 * stack trace and selected registers when do_fork() is called.
 *
 * For more information on theory of operation of kprobes, see
 * Documentation/kprobes.txt
 *
 * You will see the trace data in /var/log/messages and on the console
 * whenever do_fork() is invoked to create a new process.
