How about one more cleanup: make the x86 do_int3()/do_debug() calling
convention be independent of CONFIG_KPROBE?

Btw, the way to test against zero in x86 asm is not

        cmpl $0,%eax

but rather the shorter

        testl %eax,%eax

which just shows that the person who wrote the asm probably was used to
saner CPUs ;)
