Re: [PATCH v4 1/3] systemtap/tapsets.cxx: Fix dwarfless probes on multiple static functions

Looks good. I pushed this with one tiny change:

@@ -8242,6 +8242,8 @@ symbol_table::purge_syscall_stubs()
   if (!addrs || addrs->empty())
   /* Highly unlikely that multiple symbols named "sys_ni_syscall" may exist */
+  if (addrs->size() > 1)
+    cerr << _("Multiple 'sys_ni_syscall' symbols found.");
   Dwarf_Addr stub_addr = addrs->front();

Just so that if this highly unlikely scenario does occur we get a
warning something is fishy.
