[PATCH] Move Kprobes and Oprofile to "Instrumentation Support" menu



Andrew Morton suggested to move kprobes from kernel hacking menu, since
kernel hacking menu is in-appropriate for the Kprobes.  This patch moves
Kprobes and Oprofile under instrumentation menu.

(akpm: it's not a natural fit, but things like djprobes and the s390 guys'
statistics library need a home)

Kprobes allows you to trap at almost any kernel address and
execute a callback function. register_kprobe() establishes
a probepoint and specifies the callback. Kprobes is useful
for kernel debugging, non-intrusive instrumentation and testing.
