[PATCH v2 5/9] kprobes: Search non-suffixed symbol in blacklist




Newer gcc can generate some different instances of a function
with suffixed symbols if the function is optimized and only
has a part of that. (e.g. .constprop, .part etc.)

In this case, it is not enough to check the entry of kprobe
blacklist because it only records non-suffixed symbol address.

To fix this issue, search non-suffixed symbol in blacklist if
given address is within a symbol which has a suffix.

Note that this can cause false positive cases if a kprobe-safe
function is optimized to suffixed instance and has same name
symbol which is blacklisted.
But I would like to chose a fail-safe design for this issue.
