IIUC kretrobes works by patching the function entry point with a BRK, so that it can modify the LR _before_ it is saved to the stack. I don't see how SCS affects that. When the instrumented function returns, it'll balance its SCS state, then "return" to kretprobe_trampoline. Since kretprobe_trampoline is plain assembly, it doesn't have SCS, and can modify the LR live, as it does. So functionally, that appears to work. What am I missing?
