kprobes: silence DEBUG_STRICT_USER_COPY_CHECKS=y warning
Enabling DEBUG_STRICT_USER_COPY_CHECKS causes the following warning: In file included from arch/x86/include/asm/uaccess.h:573, from kernel/kprobes.c:55: In function 'copy_from_user', inlined from 'write_enabled_file_bool' at kernel/kprobes.c:2191: arch/x86/include/asm/uaccess_64.h:65: warning: call to 'copy_from_user_overflow' declared with attribute warning: copy_from_user() buffer size is not provably correct presumably due to buf_size being signed causing GCC to fail to see that buf_size can't become negative.
