Subject[PATCH 1/1] x86/gart/kcore: Exclude GART aperture from kcore
Date
On machines where the GART aperture is mapped over physical RAM,
/proc/kcore contains the GART aperture range and reading it may lead
to kernel panic.

In 'commit 2a3e83c6f96c ("x86/gart: Exclude GART aperture from vmcore")',
a special workaround is applied for vmcore to let /proc/vmcore return
zeroes when attempting to read the aperture region, as vmcore and kcore
have the same issue, and after 'commit 707d4eefbdb3 ("Revert "[PATCH]
Insert GART region into resource map"")', userspace tools can't detect and
exclude GART region.

This patch applies the same workaround for kcore. Let /proc/kcore return
zeroes too when trying to read the aperture region to fix the issue that
reading GART region may raise unexpected exceptions.

This applies to both first and second kernels as GART may get
initialized in the first and second kernels.

To get the same workaround work for kcore, this patch implement a hook
infrastructure for kcore which is same as the hook infrastructure for
vmcore introduced in 'commit 997c136f518c ("fs/proc/vmcore.c: add hook
to read_from_oldmem() to check for non-ram pages")'', and reuses the
checking function gart_oldmem_pfn_is_ram introduced in
'commit 2a3e83c6f96c ("x86/gart: Exclude GART aperture from vmcore"),'
as the hook function, but rename to gart_mem_pfn_is_ram as now it's
for a more generic use.
