kprobes: cleanup aggr_kprobe related code
Currently, kprobes can disable all probes at once, but can't disable it individually (not unregister, just disable an kprobe, because unregistering needs to wait for scheduler synchronization). These patches introduce APIs for on-the-fly per-probe disabling and re-enabling by dis-arming/re-arming its breakpoint instruction. This patch: Change old_p to ap in add_new_kprobe() for readability, copy flags member in add_aggr_kprobe(), and simplify the code flow of register_aggr_kprobe().
