Yes, it is easy to explain how we transcribe from 
arch_within_kprobe_blacklist() to arch_populate_kprobe_blacklist().

Ah, good catch! No, we don't need it here. Sorry I worked on older patch.
I'll update it.

yes, so it should not.

OK.

Hmm, I'm not sure when the original code decided this. But it sounds reasonable.

OK, then I should wait for that, because this series is a kind of improvement.
But your's is a bugfix, that should be backported to stable.
