I can reproduce this crash even on plain kvm, in this case running
systemtap: 1.6/0.152,, 2 VCPU.

<0>Call Trace:

Without the kgdboc=kms,kbd boot options, the test case works fine.
This leads me to believe that there is a conflict between the kernel's
kretprobes and kgdb systems, and likely not a bug in systemtap proper.
(I haven't been able to trigger the problem with a couple of 'perf
probe' attempts though.)  However, checking the hack associated with, disabling kprobes optimization makes
this test case work for me.  Please try

# echo 0 > /proc/sys/debug/kprobes-optimization

and rerun your tests.  The next release of systemtap will probably
include code to do the same thing. :-(
