kprobes: return proper error code from register_kprobe()
register_kprobe() aborts if the address of the new request falls in a prohibited area (such as ftrace pouch, __kprobes annotated functions, non-kernel text addresses, jump label text). We however don't return the right error on this abort, resulting in a silent failure - incorrect adding/reporting of kprobes ('perf probe do_fork+18' or 'perf probe mcount' for instance). In V2 we are incorporating Masami Hiramatsu's feedback. This patch fixes it by returning -EINVAL upon failure. While we are here, rename the label used for exit to be more appropriate.
