i was thinking about the time spent in
+	preempt_disable();
+	hlist_for_each_entry_rcu(p, node, head, hlist) {
+		sym = kallsyms_lookup((unsigned long)p->addr, &size,
+					&offset, &modname, namebuf);
+		if (p->pre_handler == aggr_pre_handler) {
+			list_for_each_entry_rcu(kp, &p->list, list)
+				report_probe(pi, kp, sym, offset, modname);
+		} else
+			report_probe(pi, p, sym, offset, modname);
+	}
+	preempt_enable();

with preemption disabled... it could a second or more, if many probes
are enabled, it could have a negative effect on a production server.
