Subject[PATCH 4.18 001/171] powerpc/traps: restore recoverability of machine_check interrupts
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Christophe Leroy <>

[ Upstream commit daf00ae71dad8aa05965713c62558aeebf2df48e ]

commit b96672dd840f ("powerpc: Machine check interrupt is a non-
maskable interrupt") added a call to nmi_enter() at the beginning of
machine check restart exception handler. Due to that, in_interrupt()
always returns true regardless of the state before entering the
exception, and die() panics even when the system was not already in

This patch calls nmi_exit() before calling die() in order to restore
the interrupt state we had before calling nmi_enter()
