It's both:

/* Handle faults in the kernel portion of the address space */
static void
do_sigbus(struct pt_regs *regs, unsigned long error_code, unsigned long address,
u32 *pkey, unsigned int fault)
{
struct task_struct *tsk = current;
int code = BUS_ADRERR;

/* Kernel mode? Handle exceptions or die: */
if (!(error_code & X86_PF_USER)) {
no_context(regs, error_code, address, SIGBUS, BUS_ADRERR);
return;
}

/* User-space => ok to do another page fault: */
if (is_prefetch(regs, error_code, address))
return;

tsk->thread.cr2 = address;
tsk->thread.error_code = error_code;
tsk->thread.trap_nr = X86_TRAP_PF;


Note the X86_PF_USER check: that's what determines whether the fault was
for user or system mappings.

I agree that the comment is misleading and should be clarified.

Thanks,

Ingo
