Two separate kprobes-related problems have demonstrated crashes
on recent fedoras (as well as on RHEL6, whence this bug was cloned).
The following patches should be applied active Fedora kernels.
linus commit 829e924 Fix removed int3 checking order
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/108500/ Fix kprobes to skip prefixes correctly
Both of these affect x86.

I do not see this patch in any upstream git tree.
It is in mingo's tip/auto-latest.
Commit 829e924 is in 2.6.34, which is in updates-testing for f13.
The other patch is upstream now as commit 567a9fd and is needed in 2.6.34 and 2.6.35 (f14).
Fixed in 220.127.116.11-47.fc13 and 18.104.22.168-12.fc14
kernel-22.214.171.124-47.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.
kernel-126.96.36.199-47.fc13 has been pushed to the Fedora 13 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
