We don't do the real store operation for kprobing 'stwu Rx,(y)R1'
since this may corrupt the exception frame, now we will do this
operation safely in exception return code after migrate current
exception frame below the kprobed function stack.

So we only update gpr[1] here and trigger a thread flag to mask
this.
